Below some additional information:

Jan Selen is a former teacher of aesthetics, music and modern languages. As a self-taught artist, he forges, welds and grinds exceptionally beautiful figurines inspired by music, dance, daily life and religion. He also draws on mythology (Pegasus), the Iliad (Hector and Andromache), Flanders (knights), but above all, music and dance were and are his favourite subjects.

For half a century, Jan has been an active hobbyist in wood and ironwork for domestic use. Over the last 20 years, the welded and forged figures have emerged, in which the specific poses play the leading role.

Occasionally, his figurines find their way to private collections.
