“To me there is nothing more radiant than an expectant mother.” These are the words of the artist, Terry L. Crowther, and the inspiration behind this piece of art.
For us who have been blessed with the unconditional love of a mother, we know it is unlike any other kind of love. Only a mother knows the miracle and feeling of a human life growing inside of her. This is where that unconditional love starts.
When the artist decided to do this sculpture, he reached out to his granddaughter when she was five months pregnant with her second child. It was his granddaughter who knew that the perfect time to model for the piece would be in her seventh month and recommended they wait. She was also the one who suggested the pose and look of quiet reflection.
As the artist looks at his completed piece of art with love, he reflects on the love and impact our mothers have on or lives. He also feels it honors our mothers who have given birth to us and loved us unconditionally.
