This series of bronze statues are mainly abstract human figures standing on long legs. With the theme: Man in his daily doings. The posture and appearance of the sculptures reflect an emotion and atmosphere in which that person finds himself at that moment. They are warriors, guards and frivolous ladies with nice skirts. They are single sculptures or often in groups of 2 to 5 human figures. The structure of the sculptures is layered and/or with square surfaces. For 95%, all statues have a hole in the body, which stands for the imperfection of the human being, regardless of race or status. This common imperfection connects them together. All sculptures are placed on a pedestal of Belgian or Irish bluestone.
