The image depicts a sculpture of three figures, seemingly a family group, carved from a dark material. The figures are stylized with elongated and simplified forms; their faces lack detailed features and their bodies are smooth with minimal detailing to indicate musculature or clothing, giving the sculpture a modern and abstract feel.
The figure on the left is seated, with one knee raised and one arm wrapped around the knee. This figure's head tilts slightly towards the other two figures as if engaged in a moment of family intimacy.
The central figure seems to represent a child, as it's smaller in size compared to the adult figures flanking it. This figure is cradled between the left seated figure and the right standing figure, with one of the child's arms reaching out to the standing figure.
The figure on the right stands with a straight posture, one hand placed on the seated figure's knee and the other hand resting on the child's back. The standing figure's head leans down lovingly towards the child.
The three figures are in close physical contact, which, along with their interconnected poses, suggests a strong familial bond. The black patina gives the sculpture a sense of unity and timelessness. The base of the sculpture is a flat, rectangular platform ensuring stability and grounding the figures.
The artwork conveys themes of family, unity, support, and perhaps love and affection through its composition and the interactions between the figures.
