For the 2nd painting in the series I have chosen a mother with a child, a very old theme which existed even in pre-Christian art and which appears in the first icons of Coptic art in Egypt. Although I have painted Maria and Jesus as subjects I have not actually painted a star over Maria as is normal and which would indicate that she is a virgin, because this painting is about the unconditional love a normal healthy woman feels instinctively for her child. A love which protects and defends, indeed as a healthy society should defend its children. But is this love truly respected today? I expect the viewer to comprehend that Mother-Love is the first love, which is the love we should have all known since we are somebody�s child, and that it is the source of all life, a love which will protect and defend us forever.
