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.
