Joska Soos at his Home

In 1946 Joska Soos moved to Belgium and lived for a while in Charleroi. In 1965 he went to live in Brussels. In the 1980's he moved to Merksem, a part of the city of Antwerp. My first visit to his house in Antwerp was in 1989. Over the years he sent me pictures of himself in and outside his house:

Shamans like strawberries too!

In this picture you can see a metal creation he made of a light being. In his right hand he is holding a Buddhist ritual dagger. Around his neck is a special amulet he was given.

A photo taken in 2001, when Joska Soos was 80 years old.

 On the wall is a painting that had such a special meaning

 to him that he never wanted to sell it.
