This is the original work of Hongo Shin, a sculptor famous for a number of monuments including "Wadatsumi's Statue". All Hongo's works are highly expressive of human love. This statue was funded by the Hiroshima City Ladies Union in August 1960. The bronze statue is in the image of a mother trying to overcome difficulties while clinging to her child and covering a baby with her left hand.
