This beautiful wall hanging is the very picture of resilience. The “Rice Milling Mother” tells the story of the working mother’s strength and perseverance – a story for all women, everywhere.
Sculpted in aluminum and mounted on a stately rosewood backing, the piece depicts a literal working mother – milling rice for food while her child is strapped to her back. Through this traditional imagery a larger message of dedication and spirit is conveyed: the abstract impression of woman and child could be any woman around the world, doing her best to meet society’s expectation that she can be both caregiver and breadwinner.
This unique piece was inspired by the power of working mothers who contribute to society by raising their children and helping others. In a larger sense, working mothers help keep societies moving forward and the simple beauty of that idea is captured in this wall hanging. Its powerful message and visually striking design is suitable for tastes that run from modern to eclectic. The warm tone of the rosewood combined with the neutral aluminum of the sculpture makes it a perfect complement for any interior decor and will speak to your sophisticated artistic taste!
The “Rice Milling Mother” is handcrafted in Madagascar, and comes with a ready-to-hang hook mounted on the back.
