Jesus shows by example how to love and cherish children. "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven."
Children are lovingly embraced in this endearing sculpture. Many churches and schools are using this sculpture as a symbol of the responsiblity to care for children.
