Long Description:
Kasvu is finnish and means growth in english. This relief work is made by artist Erkki Silvennoinen in 1952.
Two boys are playing with kite and girl is picking flowers. There is three layers in a work. On top is a border that is the wall with tiles. Then white tiles that brings boys, girl, flowers and kite visible from the black background level. This is very eye caching work in my opinion.
