The remarkable bond between a mother and her child begins with gestation and continues after birth through touch. Our first lessons on how to interact with our world and the people around us begin in our mother’s arms. Giacomo Manzù captured this intensely physical relationship in a series of sculptures of women with their children in various states of embrace and caress. This sculpture was never put into production, and the chalky remains of the casting process remain on its surface.
