Paul Manship created several sculptures of women and children that were inspired by his wife, Isabel, and their four sons and daughters. Manship studied Greek and Egyptian art as a student, and in this piece we can see the influence of these ancient styles in the woman's almond-shaped eyes and arched eyebrows. Even though her features are stylized, Manship conveyed the affection in her face as she gazes up at the young boy.
