Description

Cast stone. The sculpture features the head, shoulders, and left hand of a woman; the hand cradles the head of an infant. The woman's eyes are partially closed, while the child looks upward at her. The exaggerated features of the mother are characteristic of Umlauf's earlier work, and reveal Michelangelo's subtle influence on Umlauf's style.
