Lobo depicted mother and child subject matter often in his sculptures, as well as, like here, in two dimensions. This work takes the iconic image, referencing a history of madonnas, and adds the bird, likely a dove, as a possible symbol of hope or peace for the future. The child reaches to catch the bird in its young grasp, but the bird seems just out of reach. Physical Description
This print shows an abstracted nude woman on her back, holding a child in the air above her. The child is stretching one hand out towards a white bird at the top left. Both woman and child are looking at the bird and the atmosphere is playful.Primary Object ClassificationPrintCollection AreaModern and ContemporaryRights
