The sculptor with extraordinary tenderness and love presents an important moment in the life of every person – taking the first steps. The image of an inspirng, caring mother, who carefully and lovingly supports her son, is especially impressive. The author quite accurately manages to show the mother’s feeling when she lets go of her child, the one who is the most precious and valuable that she has, to make the first small, but already independent experience. A mother is like a child’s wings, and the little traveler himself is inspired by a new skill – standing firmly on his feet, open and ready for exciting adventures.
