  • Quotes

    "For me, the woman or the mother does everything,” he says. “They are more productive than men. If the woman disappears from the world there won’t be any progress".

    "I prefer monumental sculptures. I like to have a balance between monumental sculptures and architecture ... In education you study the history of art from the Greeks, the Egyptians, and you always dream of doing big sculpture like the pharaohs, the pyramids – anything related to buildings and architecture".
