  O.
1989.01.11
80 x 60, oil on canvas
  This is a psychological portrait, in which a childish feature is connected with a certain display or

      Metamorphosis
1989.06
120 x 90, oil on canvas

1989.07
190 x 126, oil on canvas

Not a small child among the shepherds, as we had thought, but a powerful god is born, like a sun which shines once again.
