We have not placed the casts of our two sons in the drawing room at home. We feel energized on seeing them at our office when we reach there in the morning. For us, they are a part of cherished personal memories.
We have got plaster casts made for my three year old son. Now, we want to do one for the whole family, and form a family tree of hands. Casting is different from photography and videos, especially as we do not even get photographs framed and developed these days.
Everyone clicks photographs and they are indeed special as well. But the emotional value of objects such as 3-D casts of our two year old son and four-year old daughter is much more, and their relevance will only grow with time.
