The Mother

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.
