I froze. My eyes ran up the stone sculpture, absorbing the woman’s features. I stared at her nose, her eyes, her lips, her curly hair. She… She…
“Miss Harley says we have free time to wander the museum.”
“How long?” I asked, keeping my eyes on the sculpture.
“I think twenty minutes. Want to see the Picasso exhibition?”
I shook my head. “I’m going to stay here.”
“For twenty minutes?”
My friend paused and then left. I stepped closer to the sculpture and inspected the way her hair had been sculpted. Her hair was just like my hair. She had my features. She was the first time I had ever seen my race in a classical stone sculpture. I knew in that moment what my next art project was going to be. I would honor the beauty of my features, my bloodline, in stone.
