It all started with a Sauce Bottle. I painted it to make a flower vase but then ended up in making an african girl. Loved it and continued ............. I hope my "Mother MARY" is innovative and promotes the idea of RRR (Reduce, Reuse & Recycle). If you love this idea too..................VOTE for me :)
