This was a wedding present by my beloved friend Nur and since then it has become of the most important pieces of our collection in Istanbul.

It is the figure of a woman balancing sun and moon (and herself) on one foot.

Most probably, this was a very carefully selected present, to remind me how important it is to have a woman in your life who can balance multiple priorities and still keep her balance.

Looking at it, I see it as a perfect representation of my beloved wife. Always (and successfully) trying to balance a lot of things…
