James states, “Considering the location the subject matter seemed like a given.  I felt my challenge was to do something different with a subject matter that has been done millions of times before.  Guided by the idea of putting the baby’s heart in the center of a circle helped me compose something I like to think is distinctive, compelling and site appropriate.  I have made a limited edition of 12 of the one third scale model I used in creating this public work.  The figures are cast bronze with a stainless steel ring.  It is available at Art Uptown.  It stands 21 inches tall with an 18 inch diameter ring.”
