"Her eyes saw hell, loss and pain.

Still they shine like small galaxies in dark times.

When she was boarding the space ship to seek refuge, she did not know where it would take her.

She was alone, lost everything that ever mattered to her, except "Bubba, the bear". She was holding on to him to find a better future from now on."


In private collection.

This is such a wonderful concept and sculpt by the Teamwork of Josua Lai and Momo Pügerl. It was an absolut highlight for me to be able to paint it alongside Josua's great version as the box-art for www.robotrocketminiatures.co.uk
