#16 Augusta Savage – Diving Boy

Aug

30

“It gives me courage to do things I’m scared of.” – Isabella, age 10

“This is the piece of artwork that I always seek out when my spirit needs lifting. It is often said that one’s attraction to a particular artwork has to do with your life’s experiences – ‘The Diving Boy’ reminds me of when my sons were young – they would step from the bath tub waiting for me to wrap them in a towel – the connection has nothing to do with diving, but the love and warmth of a mother’s love for her young sons.” – anonymous
