Asian art and Antiques
The name for the gallery “Tjitra” comes from my first girlfriend with Moluccan roots many years ago. After we both got divorced we met again and it was love on second site ;-) in the year 2000. We were told that the name means “Gods sign” although nothing has been written about this as far as we could find it. Looking at all our objects we have, they are direct or indirectly, to do with a god, gods, ancestors or superstitions. Besides the fact that we live in the small village “Engelen” (township of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands) which means “Angels” the name for the gallery “Tjitra” would be more than appropriate.
