Repose of Innocence. Statue, in Marble, (sculpture)
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 211
A child stretched at full length upon its couch, in the depth of sleep. The expression is one of pure, sweet rest. The easy disposal of the whole figure is very admirable, and the face one of much beauty. The cross beneath its head is typical of the Christ who watches over little children. The work is two thirds life size, done in pure Carrera marble. [P. 251; engraving on p. 251 is signed "N. Orr--Co." and depicts a small boy lying on a couch with one hand resting on his bare chest.]
