This small scene conveys the intimacy of a young girl's personal devotion. With skillful technique, Kollwitz creates a darkened space in which the young girl's face and hands glow as if lit from within, increasing the sense of the spiritual. The subject's humble posture, closed eyes, and parted lips serve to further emphasize the unselfconcious and absorbing intensity of her prayers.
