A woman rests on a bench beside her infant in a carriage. Behind them is an open field surrounded by trees and a man walking.

By a lake a woman sleeps near an empty baby carriage as a mysterious figure retreats in the distance trailing swaddling clothes. Around the border solemn statues with folded hands watch as the sun sets. Woodland plants.
