The woman is caring for two children. She encourages the older one to read. Inscribed on his scroll is the moral: ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.’ The woman personifies the virtue of Caritas (Charity) in her role as educator, a typical Italian theme. With this sculpture Bartolini contributed to a topical discussion about the importance of education in Tuscany.
