“Hence, Canes are made by shepherds living in the countryside where stars and seasons are the only points of reference and where time does not matter; by old men sitting by the fireside on whom time has lost its grip; by soldiers waiting in the mud of trenches to go back to life or to march to death; by prisoners for whom freedom is so far away that it has become an abstraction. The cane is the work of a man totally uninhibited, who does not account for his time and for whom time doesn’t matter or no longer means anything” (G. Segas) Popular art canes by L. Jantzen
