A version in gres Sweet caress. The most striking feature of this piece is undoubtedly the look and expression on the mother’s face (whose style and decoration remind us of the young girl in Bright Eyes).
A bust depicting a mother whose remarkable head of hair gently envelopes her child. In this piece the sculptor wanted to express that special bond between a mother and her child. The decorative details are of utmost importance as they help to convey the pureness of this bond.
Both the expressions of their faces and the naturalness of the skin thanks to the warmth of gres, contribute to create a more realistic scene in comparison with the previous version. The enamels on the hair of both mother and child also enhance this real appearance.
