My Old Chestnuts

Books and handmade gifts are a family tradition. My daughter, 15 years old, surprised me this morning with this drawing, with an apology for spending so much time shut up in her room whilst making this gift. Embedded into each figure are one or more of my passions.

  1. This is a marvellous gift, so thoughtful and loving.

    You must be very proud of her. (And her parents should be proud of themselves to have raised such a talented and wonderful girl)

    Happy holidays.

  2. What a lovely gift. Thank you for sharing, Anthony! I’m especially fond of the symbols she integrated into her portraiture. Is that an anarchist symbol she drew on Dante’s hand?
