The Mother and Child

Rs.12,000 Inc. Tax

The figure of the mother with her child has been immortalized through paintings and portraits in many different ways throughout history. This particular image is also a very common metaphor for the portrayal of the Virgin Mary with Jesus, after the birth of the great redeemer. In this particular portrait too the image of the mother with her child has been used for this particular purpose. White is a color that is embedded in the popular notions of Christianity as symbolic of the auspicious and the pure. However, here the artist has deviated from the popular notions of the auspicious and the divine with his very own color palate. The color scheme deals mostly with dark hues and shades. These include a number of Prussian blues and greens, along with red. The Virgin Mary stands on the pedestal in her usual attire with the redeemer, who is just a new born baby held in her arms. The traditional stars surround them while the baby raises its hands as a gesture of acknowledgement. Thus, even though the artist experiments with the techniques and the contrasts, the portrait pertains to the usual image of the mother with her child in this popular image.
