Polo, the donkey of my french neighbours died this year. Everybody in the small village knew and loved him because he brayed all day. He died young and we were all very sad. I dedicated a woodcut to him, where five graces await him in a kind of heaven. They seem to realize what they will win when he joins them in heaven. The transparent sunflower is a personal symbol of mine as a medium between life and death. Poppies with their unnatural red seem to me to transpierce through lying truths and worlds to reality.
