Description
The female presses against the back of her man, her face turned to look over his left shoulder while her hands grip onto his sides, spread over the clearly marked rib cage. Though seated with left leg tucked under the knee of the right leg, the man is in a defensive position. He holds weapons in both hands positioned as if the enemy is approaching. Each of them have appliqu├ęd pellets on their shoulders and wear 'soft' peaked caps surrounded by a band of similar pellets. The male has on short pants reaching just above the knees. The sense of danger is revealed in the display of teeth in a grimacing smile, and the intense expression in the almond-shaped eyes. There is a strong feeling of protectiveness and intimacy in this sculpture, where male and female join as one to shield the other from harm. - (PF.2250)
