I love learning about my roots, and have been looking into my family trees. Unfortunately some are missing, as they only keep records of the male lineages, i miss the females. This sculpture, i thought was my great grandmother, turns out it's a boy 😄 for special occasions the boys would wear linen dresses.
1. My great grandfather, Rein Miedema, sculpted by my great- great- grandfather Simon the Sculptor
2. Simon Miedema or Simon the Sculptor in his atelier. He received the Prix de Rome in 1882.
