Description

Cast bronze. The piece features a family of three. The father stands in the center; his left arm is behind the mother and his right arm holds the child. The mother stands to the left of the father; her right arm is around the father, and her left arm supports the backside of the child. The child's left arm leans against the father's chest and its right arm is extended upward, with the palm of its hand facing outward. Each of the three figures has a different focal point--the father faces forward, gazing into the distance; the mother looks upward at the child; and the child looks upward towards the sky.

This sculpture is a scale model for the 15' tall version that currently stands in front of the University of Texas at Austin's Red McCombs School of Business.
