The sculptured work mixes imagery from Saskia’s childhood, from enchanted summer days, dreams and stories, real life observations of pet animals, myths, and collective memories embodied in heroic bronze. Her sculptures invited the viewer to a deceivingly simple journey of imagination the explorative fascination of what might co-exist within the realms of limitless scale and crossbreeding.
