Where are you from?
What brings you to MIA? Is this your first visit?
Yes, it was introduced to me by a friend.
Why is this your favourite piece in the collection?
I love the intricacy of this piece. The details are gorgeous, it tells me so many stories. Also, whales are my favourite animal – the fact that this is made out of whalebone, I just fell in love with it.
