A pattern of the picture on the wall of the house in Stockholm is the sweater which the aunt of my mother knitted for my father for the Christmas 1978 to his wish. This sweater began to be my favorite in my teens. And I ruined it by everyday wearing. In 2006 I got a carbon copy of it, then knitted by mother-in-law of my sister Ann. By creating the picture on the wall in Stockholm, there takes place another expansion of our “crest” to the public space, this time beyond frontiers of the Czech Republic.
It is an export of the family heritage. In the same time, I bring to the street a simplified natural motive of little dogs.
