According to I. G. McAllister, in this statuette "the arrangement of drapery is unique; the material falls in most unstudied folds without any conventional prearrangement; yet the effect is good. It is a dramatic and convincing work, and the beautiful face of the wife of Hereward the Wake expresses intense sorrow and tragedy" (99). Ann Compton, for her part, likes the "strong and stable compositional structure," specifically the way that "the kneeling posture and arrangement of the hands on the prayer stand connect figure and base" (17).
