In the 17th century, people commissioned artistes to make small portable portraits. Portraits of people getting married, the birth of a child or a portrait to commemorate the death of a person.

This is a series of portraits of my direct family, portrayed with their spouse on the reverse. The portraits of parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters, and their sons and daughters make the medal a genealogical document. The depiction resemble portraits on roman coins.
