I am still learning
translates from the Italian, "Ancora Imparo"
Ancora Imparo, a quote from the great Italian renaissance artist Michelangelo, w hen he was in his 80s.
Given his achievements in painting, sculpture, poetry and architecture, this humility is striking and strongly reminiscent of the Greek Philosopher Socrates, "The wise man knows that he knows nothing".

On the back of each piece there is a label that explains it's origins and significance, so that you can understand the imagination that lies behind it.
