With great sensitivity and love, the ancient artist from the culturally rich country of Costa Rica has created a small masterpiece in clay. The mother is tenderly holding her baby. She is happy and proud to be nourishing her newborn baby. Her head is held high with the sweetest expression on her face. Something tells us that she is a very special person. She has fantastic designs covering her body and face. She is quite beautiful with her arched eyebrows and thick, full mouth. Her nose is aquiline and her eyes are wide with wonder as she cradles her small miracle. She sits on a small throne. Her long, black hair is immaculately cut at the back. Earspools adorn her ears. Her hands and feet are painted black. This is a spectacular sculpture. It has required great skill and artistic sensitivity by the ancient artist to create such a loving and pure portraiture of mother nursing her baby. After all these centuries, it continues to touch the hearts of us all. - (PF.3766)
