“MOTHER”

by Lise Becu

This sculpture, MOTHER, centers on the theme of protection. The mother looks down at the child who is looking out into the world and starting to let go of her hand. The eyes on the peacock’s tail surround the figures, watching over him and protecting him on life’s journey.

This exhibition is made possible by Creativity Fund for Gardiner in conjunction with Gardiner Main Street and the City of Gardiner. Each year the program selects a sculpture to be displayed between the months of May and October. This sculpture is on loan from The Viles Aboretum in Augusta.
