Each bust depicts an athlete who represented Romania since the 1978 Olympic Games in Montreal. The series serves as an homage to the strength and success of female artistic gymnasts and athletes around the world. The School of Gymnasts was picked up by the legendary gymnast Nadia Comaneci and is coached by Marta and Bela Karoly.
