Acrylic on handmade paper

77 x 58 cm (30 1/4 x 22 3/4 in)

Quick Overview

A mother holds her child in her arm as she stares lovingly into his form. There seems to be no other world in her eyes except for the one she shares with her young kin, as her currant-colored aura paints a space where only she and her loved one reside. It is a scene from a dream, the child weighing no burden upon her arm, only then leaving the ideal intimacy and love shared between family members. The mother holds him close, softened brow showing a knowing look - the gaze of one who at that moment knows all and accepts all of the other’s being. National Artist BenCab recreates the special relationship shared by a mother and her child in the period before he completely detaches from the bosom, a warm blanket of red, and ventures into an undefined world beyond.
