SANS FAMILLE

You are welcome to meet characters from my collection of papier-maché marionettes based on Hector Malot's classical book « Sans Famille ».

 

« Sans Famille » is one of my favorite books since childhood. Recently my volunteering in Children's Hospital in Riga led me to think how disfunctional families have not  changed so much since 19th century's France. My heart hurt, images of unhappy children hunted me till I started to make this collection.
