Description

Cast stone. The female figure is posed in a reclining position, looking upward, with her arms at her sides and ankles crossed. She is wearing a long-sleeved, flowing dress, and her hair is pulled back in a low bun.

The sculpture is an homage to Umlauf's wife, Angeline Allen Umlauf (1915-2012). She was a poet and frequent model for her husband. The sculpture's posture is representative of poetic inspiration.
