[chuck] in Art, Vietnam Museum of Ethnology

Another carving from the outdoor display at the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology (see Museé d'Ethnographie du Vietnam).  Although there was no information posted about this statue, when I look at it I see a very evocative rendering of a mother and child, the child being carried in a sling or pack on his/her mother's back. [NOTE: The carving is about 5 to 6 feet tall].
