The Afghan Girl

You know her. Her name is Sharbhat Gula - she is a Pashtun and she lives in Afghanistan.

In 1985, she made the cover of National Geographic. Her picture was taken in a Pakistani refugee camp where she was in 1984. Her parents had been killed by the Russian bombs.

Her face became a world icon...

The Afghan Girl's eyes is 14 x 28".  It is made of glasses, granite, mirror and ceramics.

I am presently working on a series of eyes. Eyes do not lie, they are the first thing we look at when we meet a person for the first time. I have already published "Green Eyes".

After the Afghan Girl will come Maribel, Eva and the Tuareg Lady...

Stay with me !
