Philippe Faraut is a 21st-century French realist teacher, sculptor, furniture designer, woodcarver, and visual artist. His enormous talent can clearly be seen in this beautiful sculpture named Child Bride

He created this emotional piece in 2014 to bring social awareness to the plight of the 15 million young girls who are married before the age of 18.

The expression on this young girl’s face tells it all under the veil that hides nothing from even the most casual of observers. This earthenware clay sculpture is 19 x 13 x 11 inches, yet carries such a large message.
