Description
The out of proportion head rests chin on knee, as if to emphasize the sadness of the features. Is this figure perpetually mourning the deceased person she accompanied to the afterlife? By taking the burden of sadness upon herself, she frees the living to go about happier tasks. - (PF.0650)
