This unique exhibition is touring the world and will open its doors in Geneva on October 4th 2018.

This exhibit is for all ages from 1-100, as it shows not only the most amazing sculptures but the artist also invites you take a journey through his life, changing his profession of being an unhappy 9-5 lawyer to making his passion his new career. Nathan Sawaya has taken the most popular toy as an art medium to new heights- A MUST SEE.
