One child was dead and one was alive. Each of the two mothers who presented the case before the king claimed to be the rightful mother of the child who was alive.

Mar Summary A seated, cross-legged, naked woman envelops the body of a child. The limp child, head tipped far back, is clutched to the figure we assume is the mother. Her features are mostly hidden by the child's body--except we see one closed eye and her nose nestled into his skin.
Also visible are her expressive eyebrows, which silently communicate her explosive feelings. With her strong arms--especially a strong, thick hand--she draws the child toward her even more tightly. Her embrace is all-consuming. The mother's muscular leg forms the base of the monolithic shape that confronts the viewer.
Most of the lines the artist uses to shape and shade the forms are aggressive, taut, and meaningful, contributing energy to the surface.

Her son Peter, who at age seven posed for the dead child in this etching, was killed in World War I at the age of twenty-one and a grandson Peter was killed in World War II.
