World wars… Lust in the eyes of the sex hungry soldier.. & a child reluctant to bargain over his mother for a loaf of bread… dyer realities…

War Hunger... 2nd world war has too many pathetic stories... here for her child's hunger the mother has to trade herself to the sex hungry soldier... the fright in the eyes of the child... reluctance on the mother's face establishes the presence of an unseen soldier... child is hungry... so also is the soldier... & the woman has to satisfy them both....

The  bear skeleton of both, the mother & the child... had haunted me for years...

Made in clay medium, baked up to the temperature of 1200 deg. centigrade.

application of glazes & wiping out at places gave the worn out feel...
