Description The little chap, little tramp, Charlie Chaplin, universal icon of joy and bittersweet kindness, cast in virtual shattered glass (note: The Chapster is not a photo manipulation, or filter-generated effect, but the painstaking effort of more than a month of puzzle-piece mosaic, intense concentration, and old-fashioned artistry, an original fine-art interpretation of Charlie Chaplin's Little Tramp).

“Renaissance. This is the time, today, to renew, to live, to grow and learn. Do not wait for Renaissance to come, to reveal itself. Create Renaissance. Build on it, moment by moment, each breath, adding effort to expertise to renewal, awakening, coming alive, quickening. Renaissance is struggle to light from darkness, and can be either positive or extremely negative; to some part is choice, and emotions and attitudes may be changed, instantaneously. Work with all might, at Renaissance. Strive boldly, and hope.”
