Rosa Hubermann–A Sculpted Illustration

Jessica Fortner has created sculpted illustrations of Rosa Hubermann that are exactly as I had imagined her when reading The Book Thief.  You can feel Rosa’s grief and loneliness as she holds her husband’s accordion.  It seems that the air is sucked from both Rosa and the accordion’s bellows. More of Jessica Fortner’s work can be seen here.
