Madonna and Child

H 99 cm x W 104 cm X D 3CM Appliqued with recycled fabric and hand-stitched upon a stretched canvas frame A19 year old girl - possibly married, although this is not certain. At a very young age, she has already lost two babies to pneumonia. Her predicament is a hard cruel vicious circle. The mother’s gaze is almost mesmeric, however the child’s gaze is also engaging and intriguing; he or she is gazing as intently as the mother – but away to the left, towards something outside the image, completely ignoring the photographer (and, by extension, the viewer). This image is based on an original photograph by the Australian photographer codenamed kalsang35 on Flickr.com.
