This artwork represents abundance, growth, and gaining knowledge. The Mother is associated with fulfillment (sexual, social, and emotional), and the full moon. Springtime and early summer are her domain; as the earth becomes green and fertile, so does the Mother. A woman does not have to be a biological parent to embrace the role of Mother.

Created on a lightweight, yet sturdy, handmade substrate, this artwork features layers of bronze metal coating that has been oxidized using a special acid to create a real patina. The patina has been carefully sealed, providing stability over time. The circular design features a variety of stones and minerals, native to the American Southwest. The 3 small squares are handmade tesserae, carefully created using the same technique as the main substrate.
