How do you react when one of your works is stolen?

       This was a first experience of having  my artwork stolen.  I had  poured my heart into its creation.
       I have experienced breakage (more than once) and that hurts, but I got over the disappointment and took measures to avoid, if not eliminate this occurrence.

Now this is different, and one wonders what happened to my Reader sculpture! This is the reason for  the Missing poster.
      I made a police report and send them a picture of the work. I can’t help thinking  someone in the neighbourhood took it, someone familiar with the gallery . But I also know there is little hope of seeing my Reader again. Little hope as well of payment slipped under the door as someone suggested.

    The first time exhibited, my piece was stolen. That was back in 2004. Needless to say it took me a long time to show my work again.
