Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, J for Jongenotter

Angel in front of our church


 Dish of Wisdom

Conception resulting in new life in the shape of a crystal sphere, inspiration, breath of the spirit.


Leo Jongenotter 

Born in 1965, Barendrecht.

Sinds 1995 working as a sculptor at the Zaag in Krimpen aan de Lek.
He works with statues, and young people
He works with steel.The statues might be big or small, indoors or outdoors  abstract or figurative,but always with an element of life, that is to say an expression of emotion, movement or passion.The  story is told by the image and discovered by the spectator who listens with his  own ego.
This photo:
Soul-dial of steel in the light of the moon.

We all know the sun-dials. Well this is different. Here the three circles are not closed.  They hardly touch each other. We may think of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Sculpture for Leo's father, who was very ill but never complained and his memory is kept  alive in his family.

The stones were found on the beach of Normandy.

  Sculpture for Leo's father, who was very ill but never complained and his memory is kept  alive in his family.

 At the bottom the body is still healthy and strong, but the higher you get the frailer the nerves and the spine. At the top the body passes away but the mind reaches the victorious top of renewed spiritual life.
