Live! Survive!

Gabriele von Lutzau’s very touching and thought-provoking sculptures, which are intimately related to her own life experience, show viewers that “life is not a long, calm river”.

Faithfull to one of the objectives of “Touching Art”, that of featuring Art produced within projects of humanitarian nature, we are introducing to you today the creations of an angel. Once a flight attendant for Lufthansa, Gabriele von Lutzau (born Dillmann) became known to this day as the “Angel of Mogadishu” for her bravery and the relentless support given to the victims of flight 181 – where she was serving – as it was hijacked by Palestinian terrorists in 1977.
