I was very fortunate that a good friend of mine, and an accomplished artist, Dang Tin Toung, is a friend of Mr. Voung and had asked him to create a bronze bust for me as a gift - first created in white plaster from a photograph of me; then during one of my trips to Vietnam, as a surprised, Mr. Tuong invited me to sit for Mr. Voung's final adjustment.  It was an honor to have such a gift from a very good friend and a chance to see one of Vietnam's top sculptors working on a sculpture first-handed.  My bust was named "Madame Soraya" and was showed in the Vietnam Fine Arts Museum for three months before it was given to me.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
