Leeuw-Brok

This so called 'painting' above, was made by one of the relatives of de Leeuw after the death of Maria Brok. The hair of Maria Brok was partly cut of after here death. The trees and the leaves are made of in little peaces cutted hair. In fact, it is some sort of a relik. How long it took to make this relik is unknown. The person who made it, is also unknown. What we do know is, that it was made with love for the parents/ancestors and that it was part of a mourningprocess. It belongs to the family van Balkom, descendants of Baptist and de Leeuw.
