Gift of Mrs. John Alexander
This bronze sculpture depicts a female figure kneeling, bending forward with her arms outstretched. She grasps a long piece of cloth that is stretched on the ground in front of her, as she looks directly at the cloth with intent. The woman is wearing a long skirt, which covers her legs and feet and swirls around her on the ground. Her blouse has flowing sleeves that end at the elbows, leaving her forearms bare. Her hair is pulled back and gathered into a knot. The bronze has a dark green patina and the surface of the statue is smooth and polished.

This print depicts a far-off lanscape with mountains in blue, with a dramatic perspectival road coming from the foregound. The middle ground is made up of the white space, flanked by orange land. In the background, above the horizon, there are floating objects that seem to have forests and buildings atop them in green and aqua. In the foreground, there are two figures. One figure, to the left, is in black, green, red, and purple and wears a tunic and a long-feathered hat. The second figure is seated in a sphere at the center, surrounded by mechanisms. Above the sphere is a line drawing of abstract forms with text (mirrored). The print is signed (l.r.) and numbered (l.l.) in pencil.
