A NEW COLLECTOR WAS BORN
Many years ago, while living in Africa, I often passed by a small shop in the old town of Marrakech - which dealt in exotic antiquities.
One day, simply out of curiosity and without any intention to buy, I dropped in.
There was a small stand of little wooden and ivory statues, Japanese in origin. The dealer showed me one: it was a miniature geisha grooming a skeleton’s skull.
I stood speechless,
not realizing that in this moment a new collector was born.
