MOTHER AND CHILD

MOTHER AND CHILD
“Mother and Child” is a Relief Sculptural piece rendered in semi-naturalistic form and cast in glass fiber. It measures 108cm × 57cm. The piece shows a woman breastfeeding a baby and it is patinated in dark myrtle green auto base paint. The Mother puts on a skirt and blouse and ties a cloth around her waist and the baby is also carefully wrapped in a cloth as it suckles. Great attention has been paid to the draperies on the wears of the figure and motifs of circles and spiral designs have been used in the background of this artwork. The subtle manner an African Mother attends and cares for her child as well as the unique bond they share have been brought to bear in this piece.
