Abner was commissioned by his grandfather. Abner suddenly died when playing high school basketball. Abner was a religious boy and his favorite verse was a verse of Luke. The grandfather had noticed the sculpture Remembering in my album and asked me to make something like that, since Abner had the habit of sitting at the table with his hand under his chin. I decided to engrave the verse of Luke in the book and also engraved a picture that Abner had made for his grandfather, under his elbow.
