The paleochristian representation of the gentle shepherd carrying the rescued sheep on his shoulders is reprised in here in its general composition, but it’s declined in a laic version and it’s strongly linked to the classical sculptural tradition.
All the comparisons’ examples that come from the ancient sculptural tradition are valuable in the art of the master from Giulianova in portraying rural life’s simplicity, the volumetric soundness of a young girl who attends an everyday’s duty with a gracious gesture.
