About the Artist: This project was very personal. In 1996, Célou was involved in a head-on collision on Old Highway 395 and the fire aid crews made the decision to Life Flight her to Palomar hospital – a decision she credits with saving her life. Célou is an internationally acclaimed bronze artist. Her sensitivity to young people and animals is a talent which developed in her native France.
