Chana Orloff (1888-1968), born in Russia, immigrated with her parents to Petach Tikvah in 1905 and went to Paris in 1910 to study fashion design. She pursued a degree in art and over time became a well-known sculptor, part of the Ecole de Paris, the émigré artists who made Paris their home in the interwar period. She survived World War II hiding in the Free French Zone. After the war she did several sculptures in Israel. This sculpture commemorates Chana Tuchman Adlerstein, who died defending Kibbutz Ein Gev in 1948. The emphasis is on Tuchman Adlerstein as a mother; she left two sons.
