Press review


With the curiosity and enthusiasm of an entomologist, Jacqueline Veuve observed the extraordinary way he transforms pieces of wood into rakes and sledges.

24 heures, 1987 (René Dasen)

A most complete work, a precise ethnological approach and perfectly directed.

Neue Zürcher Zeitung, 1988
