Marcia Polenberg: Child From Aleppo

Child From Aleppo

Marcia Polenberg (MFA 1988)

I continue to be very troubled by the ongoing war in Syria and its horrific effect on the children who are subjected to bombings and terror that deprive them of a normal childhood. I created this life sized sculpture of terra-cotta clay, multi fired with colored slips and glazes in a bed of sand.
