I love African poems Vryheid moet jy nie ver soek nie
Want dit sit in eie hart
Vryheid is daai stukkie wat ons laat groei
Wat ons die opening gee na vrye gedagtes
Te kan groei in eie gees
Vryheid dra ons hart

Comment from Ejoh (Nigerian artist)

Lilian, your sculptures look alive. The one titled MEMORIES brings to mind an Yaadein Hindi word, meaning pleadings. When I leave your country,
my head will be full of memories (Yaadein) and this I so much look forward to.
The figure has a hat on and this you will see me do throughout my stay in Holland and you know what, this figure somehow looks like me !!
