The Loved Mother is even more beautiful and poignant in person than on the site. It's an iconic image representing both the religious aspect and also motherhood itself. I also have two of the Montalvo Family's secular panels, the village steps and the flower women climbing the hill. They are spectacular. I'm proud to say that I've lent to these artisans on Kiva, may their work continue uninterrupted. I particularly appreciate the icon style, being fond of Byzantine art myself. Thank you!
This is exquisitely carved and striking in itâ€™s depiction of the Virgin Mary and child. It is larger than some of the other carvings and is just incredibly beautiful. Stunning.
