Behind his style from a remote past, his ingenious blue eyes, his long white beard and hair, is a fantacticly gifted sculptor and generous heart who has devoted his life to teaching many generations of young artists the technics and art of sculpture. When assisting César, his studio filled with sculptures, moldings, anatomies was already his kingdom. Involved into his Mentor's work beyond reason, he has contributed to César work with spirit, culture, sensitivity and gifted hands.

Sculpture is his life, his world, his love.
