The artistic stylisation of the figure of the goat with her kid and the exquisitely imaginative arrangement of the animals and their spatial and physical relationship is proof of Kaendler`s great talent as a sculptor. The composition is characterised by the interlocking of the two bodies, with the kid climbing across its mother and drinking from her teat from the top of her back, while the goat licks the kid tenderly.
