Visiting Orval

This weekend we went to Orval and visited the ruines of an old Monastry. Famous because of the beer and cheese that the monks produce (very tasteful indeed!). Also inspiring because of the history and legend of Matilda of Tuscany, a strong Italian noblewoman and warrior in the Middle Ages.

There was this beauiful tree, it looks like a Tree of Life. Orval lies in Belgium near the border with France, it is an inspiring place. I hope to show you some new work one of these days.

I'm working on this small and fragile cloth and claydoll, not a "Matilda"-doll!
