This is my latest creation titled "Milagros-Mama and Me". I created this piece for an up and coming exhibit for FAC. The call for entries was presented that we had to enter pieces that reflex comfort, hope, peace, strength, courage, and little miracles. For me babies are miracles.
The mother in this piece gave birth in 1950 to twins, her first born. One of the twins died, Mona Carol and the child depicted here was suppose to live only for 30 days. Her age at the point in the piece she is 7 months and has live to be 60 thus far. I call that a miracle.
