This ceramic work depicts a female figure interacting with two smaller angelic figures. The artist frequently combines elements of drawing into her ceramics and uses only white glaze. Little makes most of her work with clay from sources near her studio. The marks the artist carves on the surface are dictated by the clay itself. The result is a composition reminiscent of Greek black- and red-figure ceramics—while retaining an ambiguity, opening space for the viewer to interpret the exact narrative.

The artist incorporates iconography into her work from a range of sources, including Renaissance painting, Japanese woodblock prints and both Greek black-figure and red-figure pottery. The carvings Little inscribes on the surfaces of her works are dictated by the material itself—which is frequently clay sourced from a location close to where the artist is working.
