A very fine work by this highly meritorious artist. Its subject is a very noble and pure-featured child perusing the Scriptures. The attitude of pious attention, the deeply intent expression of the fine face, are touchingly given. [P. 58.] The statue is executed in Carrara marble. It is a gem. [P. 64; engraving on p. 64 depicts a male child standing with his hand on open book, which he is reading. He is dressed in classical garb.]
