And this is the painting;
Oil on canvas, sizes; 1 M- 0,5 M
Artist Maike van Tuijl
A very special painting depicting a statue of a female figure holding a sundial. The statue actually stands in the Buenos Aires Zoo, in an adjacent sculpture garden. The woman protects her face with her left hand against the sun and with her right hand she indicates the time. The shadow of her index finger is pointing to the two, the time the painter painted this part of the painting. The text is better visible in the detail picture and reads: horas non numero nisi Serenas (I count only the bright hours) and the year 1914, which is the year the statue was made.
Mrs.Ellen, from the Brandsma School in Bussum, here posing with her GROUP FOUR, in front of the poster picturing all the drawings made by students for the fundraiser set up for WttW. Parents, family and friends can buy super nice things like mugs, lunch containers, stickers, mouse pads, you name it, with the kid's drawings printed on it, with the aim to raise as much funds possible for WttW. We salute 'JUF ELLEN', Ibu guru Ellen, for the fact that she made this happen. We also thank Belle, the eight year old girl who initiated the project, making her the youngest fundraiser for WttW ever, and all the other teachers and students from the Brandsma School, for participating!

To think what the land looked like only a couple of months ago.
So much work was done by members of
Rotary Club of Bali Lovina over these last months.
A couple of weeks ago we could plant the grass,
generously donated by a private sponsor, and gee,
it is growing well and last week the gate around the building
arrived and with this we are ready to move!
With many thanks to the private sponsors for coming up
ith the last much needed funding to ‘close the gate’.
