Human nature of a child is to hide their face, so they think you cant see them! This is just one of the many traits of a young child I was keen to capture.
I worked with a small child of about 2 years old to produce a bronze sculpture for the home and it ideally works best when positioned along side the other small sculpture of a girl looking up. I have displayed both bronze figures on a piece of bath stone, to create a feeling of isolation and so the eye can focus on the moment, but equally, the little girl hiding, looks lovely sitting directly on a piece of furniture.
I have shown very little detail in this bronze figurative sculpture as I wanted to focus on the outline and shape but I have exaggerated the little girl’s tummy as children generally do not care about things like that
