Smiling, the first reading glasses are put into use. Also, a first sign of physical decline. I had already made this statue before this happened to me. The model a colleague of mine, is focusing his varifocals glasses with his entire face. During the making of this sculpture this struck me, but also the similarity with the woman from the famous staircase scene of the classic film Battleship Potjomkin . An indignation about the destruction that is brought by soldiers against civilians, and from which she herself cannot escape. Whenever I come across this image I smile and seize the day.
