She is a strong woman, fully capable to navigate their future.
She makes her way with the trusted mare that carries her and her child to safety. This sculpture is about single mothers who lack the support of the father of their child, the fallen warrior. So this sculpture is named after what is missing in their lives and is a commentary on the growing trend of fatherless households, the Fallen Warrior.
The child's eyes are open and looking toward the front but not directly, for the child is young and still needs guidance.
The mare is blind on the side of the child because she can not change nor see the future.
