The loss of someone we love leaves us with a hollow emptiness that can never quite be filled again by anyone else. Part of that emptiness always remains bandaged within us. This bronze figure represents that human grief. It stands humbled with head bowed before the Wall - this Wall that ultimately symbolizes the landscape of our common grief. Over time, stone will be joined by stone in a gesture of collective remembrance to those we have loved and lost.
