In the specialized world of art, there are two kinds of artists. One, who can almost replicate to perfection what they see with their eyes. Then there are the creators, who can give colour, shape, structure and even life to things we’ve never seen or heard of. These masterminds can create and add life to their creations just by their intuitive instincts. The faces of pre-historic figures, are the best examples of their magnum opus. Our vision is the same, to create and add life to that.
