Thank you, Geraldine.
RUTH ANNA MARIA MILES, BRONZE.."BUST OF A YOUNG GIRL"
There is nothing more beautiful than the face of a child, and Ruth Anna Maria Miles is a master at showing this to us. It is all at once haunting, delicate, serene and inquisitive....the eyes searching and the lips ready for a smile.
Beautifully sculpted, her face soft and round, the eyes open with wonderment, her hat sculpting the curls on her face, while the back drape falls to her shoulders and rest on the large collar of her dress. ... It is all details ...a child dressed in her native dress with expressive eyes that look and follow you and an expression that suggest questions yet to be voiced. EXQUISITE!
