Description

Cast bronze. This abstract piece features a female figure with her torso twisted into a slight s-shape, head bent backwards, arms bent, and hands clasped together near her chin. The woman's posture and gesture represent supplication, a concept that Umlauf revisited in other works.

Originally, Umlauf made a 10" clay study for this sculpture in 1950, and created this full-size bronze in 1966.
