Luxembourg is a small country in the centre of Europe (~450,000 inhabitants). In spite of its size the country is a real melting pot of different languages and cultures.
For daily life you need at least 3-4 different languages.
This is also the theme for my bear, the symbolism of creation: script as a means of communication and at the same time a process of decorative creation through the aesthetics of their own script.
