In all of human culture, in every civilization, in every part of the world, there is perhaps no more endearing image than that of mother and child. Primal, vital, old as time itself, the material image has intrigued artists throughout the ages. This Ancient Mexican example is simplicity itself, for it reflects a scene from everyday life. A young seated mother holds her baby in her arms. There is no more to the sculpture than that, yet it radiates an eternal and everlasting power.
