Forever 14- ode to Johan Cruijff : a portrait of Johan Cruijff, Holland’s best known football player and soccer trainer. He is surrounded by the club emblems of the teams he worked for: Ajax and FC Barcelona. This piece is made with two materials: smalti and several types of marble. The face is made out of hand-cut marble giving it a unique natural appearance. To make the colors stand out even more, the emblems are made of smalti. They were later mounted on the underlying mosaic to create a 3D effect.
