When a child is shaped in a mother’s womb there’s a connection that begins to nurture that can never be broken. Cutting the umbilical cord will never sever a mother’s love from her child. This personification of affection between a mother and child and their relationship is one thing that has been created by artists time and time in mother and child sculpture and their family statutes the world over. Capturing the love that is shared between the mother and child is a beautiful reminder of the unique love between them. A mother holding her child in her arms or holding the hand of the child as they walk along are some of the beautiful shared moments in mother children sculpture.
A simple mother’s hand poised to reach out to touch the cheek of the kid speaks volumes and captures the essence of a love that is continually reaching, touching and embracing. The caring eyes that look upon her kid in the sculpted small statue will embody all of the thoughts that any mother has for her own children: Can the world be kind to my kid? Can my child someday have children of their own to love? What will the future hold in store for my beloved kid?
There are a number of mother children sculptures that illustrate this bond and different mother and child statutes, however none are as famous as the Madonna and baby Jesus. This sculpture was made by famous Michelangelo’s “Pieta” Statue Sculpture Madonna Jesus. We have embraced this mother and kid statue as our symbol of complete and utter dedication, a mother who has sacrificed and given up her own world for the sake of her child.
What mother wouldn’t embrace a mother and child statute for her own curio cabinet or mantel? Surely any woman who has given birth to a child would adore looking upon the statue of her beloved child, sculpted and forever captured, frozen in time just like the love that exists deep within her mother’s heart. A mother’s memories are her most valuable assets that she will appreciate for all of her life.
It has been said that there’s no depth to the love from a mother to her child. There is no distance so vast that it can not be traversed and nothing that can ever truly sever the connection that a mother has with her child. What better means that to forever embody that love then in a very family sculpture? Capture the connection and savor the bonds that neither time nor distance will ever sever.
The next time that you are wondering what gift to present to a mother in your life, think of the gift of a family sculpture. It’s the one dear gift that can warm her mother’s heart.
