The memorial scene on the reverse depicts a young Lady with long flowing hair and a boy ascending into the clouds, which suggests that the sitter, Hannah Hardman possibly died along with her son at an early age. The miniature is therefore, a commemoration of a short life and it serves as a true memento for those left behind. Its existence today acts as a tiny slice of history in the Hardman family.
