Brian surprised me with an early Mother’s Day present.
It a hand-carved breastfeeding mother with child.
The wooden statue came from Ghana, which is a very special place to me.
(Yes, those are our pet shrimp next to the figure.)
Breastfeeding artwork from around the world delights me. There is a literal and symbolic meaning with nearly every piece.
We decided to also use her as a literal and figurative symbol- so we placed her at our bar.
