Whether through the miracle of birth or the blessing of adoption or fostering, the arrival of a child is a mother's greatest joy. Using traditional sculpting techniques, Jay Rotberg creates a timeless homage to this special bond. The artist's emotive pieces are originally sculpted out of wax then cast in bronze and then recast using bonded resins. He finishes each sculpture with a traditional verdigris patina, a technique used to preserve sculptures since antiquity. Featuring figures in a deep embrace, this work of heart makes a powerful statement about the unconditional love a mother and her child share. Handmade in the artist's studio in Greensboro, North Carolina.
