The St. Martin-based marquetry master Jean-Pierre Straub came to visit this week, and although always happy to hang his superb works in the gallery, was particularly pleased to install two with “Anguilla content”.  “Anguilla Beach” is the iconic entrance to Meads Bay by Malliouhana Hotel, and “Le Gommier” is a representation of an (in)famous turpentine, or gum tree which had a horse’s head carved into it through the elements, here on Island.  I’m trying to find out where is was, or if it still stands.  Anyone?str1str2
