Hugo Robus's sculpture captures the age-old theme of mother and child. The stylized design and polished surface of One and Another reflect his early training as a jeweler before he turned to painting and subsequently to sculpture. Each figure is complete yet interlocked with the other; their silhouettes trace the double oval of the infinity symbol, recalling the interdependence of mother and child.
