It was a long standing dream to make a self-portrait. One day upon a stamp sampling a did find the suitable stamps to make the picture. This was a French stamp of the Liberté de Gardon series in different colours. It figured Marianne, the symbolic figure of the French Republic from Delaxroix’s painting „La liberté guidant le peuple”. I wanted to make a self-portrait using this picture. I was not successful. I could not find the right solution to feature the face so the picture became to be a „shadow picture” of two colours.
