After my turtle has been broken there was a year and my father took me to buy one more of them on a holiday. First was a sculpture and the second was the same with the old one so it was a mending treatment on the unconscious space and time. I started to work on the new one as covering it with mosaic technique. It hasn’t finished yet. But I decided the turtle should be on a laying mosaic surface and for the “world is mine” competition I chose this subject as a whole world of imagination and did it as mosaicing. Thus it won’t be broken I think. The broken object lives for ages and ages by changing its dimensions fom 3d to 2d. It is a solution whether it is funny!
