10-1/4"H X 13-1/2"W X 6"D
For more than 30 years Mirjam De Nijs has been making sculptures out of natural stone. Her background in Dutch language and literature, art history and aesthetics cultivated her inquisitive mind. Mirjam’s sculptures are the cumulative expression of her exhaustive inquiry, sculpting is a language of its own that exists beyond the visible reality and reaches further than our understanding. Themes of movement, the inevitable relationship between the stone and the design communicate the mysteries of the Earth. Mirjam works on a island outside of Amsterdam surrounded by the elements.
