"Connected old and young in delight!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Opened at a socially distanced outdoor birthday party for a teenager, the young biker it was given to and all the other generations passed it and the information about the artist around to smiles, laughter, oohs and aahs, bringing people from different generations and different countries together for a moment amidst the isolation everyone is feeling right now.

My husband is very fond of this group of artists treasures, and really liked the ship. The large size is really appealing and unusual. Lots of details make it impressive.
