The mother, Emily, and her daughter Coco now live in Margate in the South of England, and take a keen interest in how the sculpture is doing.

The Cararra marble version (unique) has found a permanent home at the “Museo degli Innocenti” in Piazza Santissima Annunciata, Florence.

“The time I spent making Mother and Child with Emily and Coco was as near as a man can get to motherhood”
