At least Tony held on to the two pockets that had the things of most value in them, we´d have been pretty upset if they´d got the ...

Looking at the exhibitions by the local galleries for instance, they cover everything from the poorest of the poor proudly dancing in the streets to the same subject looking despaired and alone in the shipyards....or worse being inspiration for politically charged sculptures that attack genocide, poverty, sexuality and war all in one (Always an interesting choice by an artist to pick shock over 'maximum resale value' or 'tell ...
