"Embrace suggests a bulbous figure (with large breasts?) who threatens to smother those who venture too close." – Dr. Joan M. Marter, Rituals of Demystification
"[...] Unger's symbolism also expresses healing, mourning, or consoling. The massive forms often support our wrap around each other, as for example in Lamentation (1989), or reach out to the viewer, as in Embrace (1989). Moreover, her sculpture also blends images of fertility with its darker symbolism, adding to the work's complexity and leaving open the door to redemption." – George Melrod, Public Art Review, 1993
