Mother and Child

Anthony Frudakis's avatar Anthony Frudakis

The "Mother and Child" statue depicts a little boy running into his mother's arms who gently comforts him. The mother's face reveals a deep love for her child, while his pose and expression imparts a sense of the comfort that he finds in his mother's arms. The drapery with its many folds and the pyramidal composition of the figures reinforce the feeling of shelter and safety. The use of the historic drapery reminds us of this ancient and sacred bond between ourselves and our mothers.
