The article portrays sculpture of "Mother M. Alfred Moes," founder of the Sisters of Saint Francis in Rochester, Minnesota, cast by sculptor Michael Major. Major casts Mother Alfred with her hand outstretched, which could be perceived as an offering of welcome or a gesture of benediction. The sculpture stands eight feet in height. Mother Alfred was a woman of strength and vision that often put her at variance with her contemporaries but which earned the trust and loyalty of William Worrall Mayo and the Mayo family.
