This evocative bronze sculpture captures the essence of a young girl returning home after a strenuous day in the wheat fields. With a rake in one hand and a bundle of wheat in the other, she wears a slight smile tinged with weariness, reflecting the toil of her labor. Her dress, laced up in the front and adorned with poofs at the shoulders, allows for freedom of movement, while her apron serves to protect it from dirt and grime. The sculpture portrays the girl's simple yet practical attire, from her half-up, half-down hairstyle with loose bangs to her slipper shoes, chosen to safeguard her feet. Her voluptuous and full-bodied figure speaks to her strength and resilience, embodying the dignity of labor and the beauty found in everyday life. Handmade with care and precision using the esteemed "Lost Wax Method," this sculpture exhibits exquisite detailing and craftsmanship. Mounted on a black marble base and signed by the artist Desmeure, it stands as a timeless homage to the quiet heroism and grace of those who work the land, infusing everyday scenes with a sense of profound beauty and significance.
