Background: French sculptress, Ana Watsman, has found a novel way of expressing her art. Her materials: old stones discarded during demolition of the Auteuil Viaduct in Paris. The old bridge, built in the reign of Napoleon LLl, used to carry the city's circular railway. Now it is being pulled down, Ana Watsman gathers up the stones and assembles them at her riverside and outdoor studio. Paris anglers and watermen watch with admiration as she ships out heads and abstract shapes.
Samples of her early work were shown recently at the National Museum of Modern Art.
