It is the Bearing Public Sculpture Project’s mission to place a life-size cast of the sculpture on all continents, providing destination sites of healing and remembrance around the world.  Bearing celebrates the strength of women across the world.  This sculpture depicts a woman carrying a man, to represent the burden that war places on the human spirit.  Dispossessed women carry the weight of family and spousal responsibilities, bearing the physical and emotional load of the aftermath of war.
