I chose to present you some sculptures that I like, representing the mother and her child. Whether old or new, of all origins, the sculptures representing the mother refer to a primitive worship of fertility, from prehistory to the present day. Formerly, this cult, where the woman is put forward, assumed a sacred dimension by venerating the Earth, fertility and fertility. Today, artists continue to carve women as mothers.
I’ll let you discover some of them:
