|Lucie Gavin is a lovely Czech lady living in Tuam|
|By Lucie Gavin|
I've had the pleasure of meeting Lucie several times over the past few years and it was lovely to spend time chatting properly over a cup of coffee yesterday.
Lucie (and several other people who have made little keepsakes for the show) told me that they entered a kind of communion with the process. They've all had a certain idea about what they've wanted to achieve but something quite emotional happens during the actual making of the piece and a particular message comes with the finished product. Lucie mentioned how the sense of 'divide and isolate' was very much a starting point but the thing that struck her was that the spirit of the two (mother and baby stays together.) That each have their own hearts but they beat as one because they are made of the same blood and tissue and that they are still one no matter how far apart they are. Beautiful.
Thank you for your contribution Lucie.#Tuamspiritbabies

Tuam Spirit Babies
These two paintings belong together.
They symbolise mum and baby.
Dove symbolises LOVE and PEACE - make peace and send Love.

Dry those tears and forgive." Lucie
