A mother holds her baby up above her head, as an offering to life. The baby is at the dawn of a new life, the starting point for a long relationship between mother and child. The scene is portrayed from a natural point of view, highly intimate and full of joy. This highly sculptural piece takes the opportunity to portray a female body free of all adornment, in a distillation of the purest meaning of the scene. White matte porcelain to enhance the modelling and sculpting of the features. Supported on a square wooden base in natural colour.
