I saw a beautiful picture of a tight, intimate hug between a young couple, a tall lean soldier and a small framed woman. They clearly cared passionately about each other. He towers over her as she is pulled into the embrace by his powerful arms, She looks so safe and hidden, like a fragile bird sheltered in her protector’s wings. This sculpture intends to provoke feelings of being very safe and protected.
