Cincinnati Art Museum

I took Sarah to the Cincinnati Art Museum and being the type of kid she is, she loved it.  We did a little scavenger hunt that they offer to school groups and one of the piece to find was this marble sculpture by Moses Ezekiel titled Margret Friend.  The description indicated that it was unique because the sculptor didn’t romanticize the little girl which most artist of the period would have done, yet he remained true to the somber nature of Margret Friend.  The scavenger hunt form ask you to write a short story about why you thought Margret Friend was so sturn looking.  This is what Sarah wrote.

“Margret Friend, not so sweet.

She’s got a head, but has no feet.”
