The outbreak of World War I found Rosandić in Belgrade. He withdrew with the Serbian army before the enemy. He worked briefly in the Military Censorship Department in Niš, to move, via Italy, to Switzerland, France and England. The greatest part of his works was destroyed at his home in Belgrade, together with his personal belongings and a nice collection of paintings and sculptures. During his emigration, Rosandić made a number of small-scale sculptures and miniatures in wood.

This elongated figurine of a woman holding a bunch of flowers on her knees has miniature dimensions. It is well-proportioned and is designed using a pure sculptural language; this work is marked by sophisticated stylization and suggestive expressiveness.
