Hebban olla vogala nestas hagunnan hinase hic anda thu, wat unbidan we nu?

Alle vogels zijn al aan het nestelen,behalve ik en jij - waar wachten we nog op?

All the birds are already nesting, except for me and you - what are we waiting for?

An icon is not a realistic portrait, but an image that shows the inner self, its personality, nature and way of life. I created these icons to honor my ancestors. I searched the archives for portraits of my direct ancestors. Based on the portraits I found, I made new portraits. I have composed these in insect boxes and put them together with insect needles. Every portrait has a little story.
