The Collection Collecor #11: Crosses

The Collector: Wilna Adriaanse
The Collection: Crosses
Reason for collecting: 'Although I have always been fascinated by the form of the cross, I never decided to become a collector. For many years it was only the bronze one from Mexico. And then a friend gave me another one and before long there were a little group of crosses. And from there on many more found their way - from all over the world- to my wall. I have but one pre-requisite: I am not allowed to buy any for myself. I do however has made myself a pewter one.

Maybe the following quote is true for all collectors: "Collecting is the only socially commendable form of greed!" '
