Star Dust

Star Dust, sculpture, Addé, African Homage

Remember me or don’t. All in all, it has no importance. Whoever we are, wherever we come from, some day it has to stop.
Many of us have descendants, others do not, yet each generation might be the last one, and will leave a trace, a memento, an enigmatic remain ; here is mine. We are all star dust…
