Barbara made this wooden sculpture when her first son, Paul, was born. It is the same size as a real baby. She talked about looking at Paul in his cot or lying on the rug when she was carving. If you look carefully you can see that Barbara has left out the fingers, toes, belly-button and eyes! It seems as if she is more interested in the shape of the baby’s body rather than all the detail. Perhaps Paul is asleep? I wonder what will happen when he wakes up? ….Ssshhh!
