Forever 14

Forever 14 is Natasja’s latest mosaic project. Forever 14 is a tribute to Johan Cruijff, the famous Dutch soccer player and trainer, who past away earlier in 2016. Natasja will make Johan Cruijff’s portrait in marble. The portrait will be surrounded by the emblems of the soccerclubs FC Barcelona and Ajax, in smalti.
