Schreurs about Little man hurray
As far as my little men are concerned I can say that they are the first to reveal my own handwriting in sculpting. The subject is very simple: soccer fans. The first little man (not on this display) standing with his arms tightly down, shows that the score is still 0 – 0. The second shows that the score has been opened. What we see now is exuberance. However, the more exuberant I made this expression, the more I wanted to make the image, and especially the feet, heavier. As if this exuberance had to be based on a solid foundation. As I continued work on the sculptures, the little men became thicker and the feet heavier. Finishing the little men took me a year. It took me a year to find my own handwriting.
