Embracing the Child
In this sculpture, the figures support and flow into each other. The child-space is perched and alert on the holder's lap. The holder embraces and creates a supportive space for the little one. Their hands together create a place that is both receptive and giving. Do I embrace my own creation? Do I acknowledge the source in me of nourishment for the Other? The grace for "Embracing" is the mystery that simultaneously holds and is held.
