Mother and Child Madonna Figurine Pottery
Mid-Century Modern, pottery figurine of the mother and child Modern, pared-down, interpretation of an enduring Classic theme in the arts
- The interplay of the distilled modelled form and delicate, etched and sponged decoration is a Classic, Mid-Century Modern interpretation of one of the principal themes of Renaissance and post-Renaissance sculpture. - The mother and child has been a strong symbolic motif of fecundity, maternity and creativity throughout the history of art. From the fertility goddess figures of the Paleolithic period to the 20th century, this image has reccurringly emerged as an empowering, symbolic theme. - The mother's facial expression and the way in which she is holding the child invokes love, care, compassion and protection. - The delicacy of the delineation of the expression on the mother's face, the child's sculptural form and the relief of the mother's hand are not shown true to the naked eye in this image which is overlit.
