The Biccard Collection figurines are made of bonded marble. I found Pablo at a market, he is a shepherd boy and one of the earlier characters produced by Biccard Studio (closed 1999), I am told he has now become the main character 'Pablo' in Biccard's new ebook 'Chessablanca' now available on Amazon. Visit www.johnbiccard.com to view images of his work. John Biccard has retired to the Karoo ' to live a contemplative life - steeped in the mysteries - reading, writing, gardening and communing with my horses'. Contrary to the myth, John Biccard is still alive, Biccard is not his surname but the name he uses as an artist.
