Antoni is a very well-respected -albeit slightly odd- merchant, surveyor, wine gauger, glassblower and microbiologist. Among Antoni’s most notable accomplishments is his home-built microscope and his pioneering work for cell- and microbiology. He never washes his feet except once unintentionally, when he decided to stand in the water until barnacles started growing on his legs. He keeps flees in his socks and fly eggs in his armpits until they hatch, for research and good company.

ANTONI is a scientist in the broadest sense of the word. He is fascinated by everything. He studies the world with an open mind. He does not judge. He observes.

But most importantly, he SEES you. He will encourage you to follow your wildest dreams and cheers you on on all your endeavors.
