ROMARIO - Brazil Legend - World Cup 94 Winner


I really am lost for words, here we have two pieces I created for Brazilian legend and World Cup Hero Romário.

I like many others have admired Romário and he has always been an idol to me. I am very fortunate to have a brother-in-law, Carlos Brum, who works within politics in Brasilia and was able to pass these two pieces onto Romário.

Romário very kindly signed a couple photo's of the figures as well as signing my Brazil shirt. He also very kindly had his photo taken with the figures.
