Mother and Child by Filipino Artists
The Madonna and Child as subject of art is definitely Christian in
origin and symbol. It fascinated artists for centuries and was made
as icons for worship in Christian churches.
In the Philippines, artists have made countless renditions of mother
and child from classical to modern art. These paintings reflect the
human view of the relationship between the mother and the child. The
love the mother gives to her child is made of deep devotion,
sacrifice and pain. It is enduring and endless that nothing can
destroy it or take that love away.
