My first attempt at a proper drawing. I drew it at 16 from a sculpture in an art gallery. The evident gentle bond between the characters seems even more relevant now. One doesn’t 100% know that the connection between them is mother and child, but the pure, loving connection present is enough to move you. In our time where touch, both physical and emotional, is scarce, this image, to those who may have forgotten, proves deep connection is possible and true, especially when it doesn’t seem so.
