Dancing Mother

Where to find it: Between HBC and Hinds Hall

A little about it: Soon after immigrating to the United States in the 1920s, Chaim Gross began to carve designs directly into wood. His work respected the nature of the material offering a fluid composition. His bronze pieces freed him from the challenges of wood carving but still show many of the same aesthetics. In Dancing Mother, Gross celebrated the intimacy between mother and child by combining both figures into one form.

 

Bonus Question: When looking at the sculpture, did Chaim Gross put his signature and the year on the right or left side of the sculpture stand?

I found it!
