Pebble Stones /My Stone Men

It’s been for a long time, maybe more than ten years… We collected pebble stones with my son at the sea side of Assos.

For a few years during our summer vacations we collected so many different pebble stones. Some of them were like a nose, or mouth or eyes… they were so small too… Every time while we were coming back home, to the city Istanbul, my husband was teasing with us, “This is not a truck, car!”… 🙂 You can guess how many stones we collected…

And all winter days we painted them together with my son… He was a little boy at that time! Now he is a young man. And soon our home was full of with many stone men… Yes, we made some of  them stone man but there was stone animals too… Especially what we found on the beach, their shapes gave this idea to us with these nose and mouth stones … Who visited us we gifted them to our visitors… sometimes I sent them as a gift to my friends… Then at the end, just a few stone men remained now…

A few days ago, when I visited her blog, her art work fascinated me and reminded me my stone men. She worked with stones but in different way, and they were so beautiful, she inspired me too… Who is she? She is a wonderful blogger and so creative too,

  4. These are wonderful, Nia. My niece made a rock man for me when she was in kindergarten. She is almost forty now. These characters have such personality. I like them as “old” rock men with their worn paint. They are little treasures carrying memories for you. 🙂
