Last Tuesday (Oct. 8th) I posted a photo of a sculpture by Retha Walden Gambaro that I saw at the Heard Museum. Therese of Tournefeuille A to Z commented that she had a favorite from this artist and given her description, I think this might be the one she was referring to. The artist's information on this statue reads: "Sculpted at age 80, 'Acceptance' is a self-portrait by the artist. She had picked up a leaf that had fallen from a tree and sat to contemplate the seasons of nature and the seasons of human life. 'As the leaf makes it's way to the ground, soon I will join it - in the bosom of mother earth.'" A very moving sentiment.
