Description
The woman is seated on a stool that is composed of two vertical columns with complex designs. Her body posture is erect and dignified, displaying a harmonic balance between the elements of the physique and the ornate scarification. The baby holds tightly onto its mother’s back, its legs reaching to the sides of her abdomen. She twists her hands behind to support the child under the hips and buttocks. Her crested coiffure is similar to those of the kpan mask representing the senior female in the “Dance of Rejoicing.” Her carefully modeled facial features express repose and contentment, a perfect model of the maternal image for young mothers to emulate. - (PF.5341)
