"CHILDREN" by J.N. Muir
"Children need our presence more than our presents." ~ Anonymous
I love public art and Sedona has a plethora of great outdoor works of art. The area itself is a photographer's paradise!
"Fleeing before the storm clouds of war, a little refugee girl, herself still merely a child, gives comfort and reassurance to her own doll-child."
"[They are on a street corner somewhere in Europe fleeing before the Nazis or the Allies; in Spain or Italy fleeing before the Fascists; in Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Afghanistan, or the Far East fleeing before the Communists; in the Middle East fleeing before the Moslems, or U.N. "Peacekeepers;" in Albania, Rumania, Azebaijan, Russia, Bosnia or Chechnya fleeing before the Socialists: and in Africa, Asia, Central America, Haiti or America fleeing before the Tyranny of poverty and oppression.]*"
"Through it all, she reflects the uncertain innocence and trust of all little children inheriting a world not of their making, yet, filled with the hope of creating a better future for themselves and for their own "war-child's" children."
"HISTORICAL NOTE: Depicts a young European refugee girl from the 1930's with a pre-1929 Kathe Kruse doll made in Berlin."
