Here is a detailed view of Mother's face. I sculpted her face of paperclay over a stuffed cloth base, also designed by myself. She is an original one of a kind piece.Her-storyShe is a protector. Though she is surrounded in darkness, represented by the black dress; she is the light shining through.Let us begin with the base of her body. The mosaic scene inside her dress is of a living tree budding with new green leaves symbolizing life, abundance.Her solemn face is a calm expression of love for the child sleeping soundly and safely at her feet. The wee one feels safe in her presence and has such sweet dreams.Mother’s hair is of a rainbow of light and living colors of a spring meadow. The nest in her crown of protecting twigs holds a delicate egg safely. The egg a symbol of new beginnings ~ a new life ~ a second chance to make things right.
