I am so inspired by artists, especially those who have carved out their own, unique style. PEM is just such an artist, and carving his style is literally what he has been doing for decades.

One of the most renowned sculptures in Mauritius, his distinctive carved wooden statues have an almost mystical quality about them. I was intrigued where he found the wood for his beautiful statues.

“I don’t find the wood”, he informed me thoughtfully, “the wood finds me.”

Such an artist is truly special.
