She transformed earth into gold... Elle a transformé la terre en or

by Miclaud July. 19, 2007 6729 views

This woman left us 3 weeks ago. She was 86 years old. All her life, she worked the earth, not as farmer, but as potter. She used the “precolombian” method, one of the Carribbean heritage.
She was very famous all over the world.
The photos have been taken by canadian students, 5 years ago.

Cette femme nous a quittés il y a 3 semaines. Elle avait 86 ans. Toute sa vie, elle a travaillé la terre, non pas comme agricultrice, mais comme potière. Elle utilisait la méthode “précolombienne”, l'héritage du peuple Caraïbes.
Elle était très connue du monde entier.
Les photos ont été prises il y a 5 ans, par des étudiantes canadiennes.

Tribute to "Man Trime" - Hommage à Madame Trime

A smile for eternity… - Un sourire pour l'éternité

Precious hands - De précieuses mains

J'ai voulu mettre en valeur ces mains qui ont deux attitudes: l'une, protectrice, et l'autre, puissante … I wanted to show these hands which have different attitudes: one, defender, and the other, powerful…

Jars, pots, dishes, ovens … She produced all what could be used at home. They were braised in the ground - Des pots, des plats pour la table, des fours… elle produisait tout ce qui pouvait servir à la maison. Ils étaient cuits dans la terre.
