These contemplative African Mother and Child holiday cards are based on a sculpture from the Bamana Peoples, Republic of Mali. The quiet calm that emanates from this image brings to mind the more spiritual side of this holiday season.
One of the oldest surviving wood sculptures from Africa, the Mother and Child Figure for the Gwan Association embodies continuity of generations and represents the strength and resilience of motherhood. LACMA's permanent collection includes approximately one hundred and fifty works from Africa.
