God could not be everywhere at once, so he created Mothers. - John Karlo Velazquez

This is a collection of different pieces that depict the mothers importance, and their dedication to their children.

The woman and child in what looks like to be the same robes. This was to say that a woman was equal to a child. While mothers were important, they were not always valued
Siren uses value to create a shadow being casted around the mother and child. This doesn't appear to be for the purpose of highlighted darkness, but rather juxtaposing the darkness to represent purity.
This piece beautifully mourned the absents of the mother. The Father's eyes are closed, but the child's eyes are open and set looking into the distance as if he is looking for his mother still.
Corolla used soft lines and bold contrast between the off white sheets and the mother's hair. Hair is usually depicted as a strong feminine symbol. The mother is standing out and being presented as someone receiving the source of happiness the artist is showing.
We can see the shape of the mother's arm holding her son. The round bold lines used by the artist show that there is comfort and serenity in this picture. This shows the comfort that comes from a mother during hard times is a beautiful thing.
Carrà desexualizes the nudity of the mother by having her son casually playing with his own half nudity. Showing that motherhood stripped of its bare core is natural and beautiful
Mary Cassatt captures a mother having trouble bathing her child. The complementary colors of the blue tub and the yellow from the mother's dress describes that the mother now has a new relationship with bath time, and its a troubling one.
This is a depiction of Mary and Jesus. The proportions are done intentionally to show the Jesus with an adult frame, but whats incredible is his affection towards his mother Mary. Though the foreshadow of Jesus being presented with an adult frame is about the man he will be, we see the child-like love he has for Mary.
This is a depiction from a Finnish poem where the mother of a great fallen warrior fishes is dismembered pieces from a river and sews it them all together in hopes of resurrecting him. She is shown looking up at a magical bee that carries honey from a god that will resurrect him. The love and dedication a mother will have to save her son. This mother had to bare witness to her son in pieces to revive him, and that love is what is being shown here.
We see a mother playing with her children. The soft lines and dynamic imply a whimsical feeling between the mother and her children. The viewer should feel happiness between the younger child reaching out for the environment, the more coy child hiding their face in their mother's dress, and the mother taking it all in.
