In Jiménez’s sculpture, a man carries a woman on his shoulders, while the woman bears an infant in her arms. The title, "Border Crossing," suggests their passage over the border between Mexico and the United States. The family’s huddled composition communicates the difficulty of their passage, yet the momentum conveyed by their posture implies a will to keep moving.
