Mary and Child
an illustrated book of love

Artwork date(s): 2010

Cashandra Willemse

Description: The book is a portrait study of the Mother Mary and Child. It illustrates the love between mother and child, and particularly the beauty that exists within that bond. The depiction of the Mother and Child will have no more, and no less meaning in the beauty of the page and the message read from paging and interacting with the various contexts of the illustrations. As a mother, the pure gift of being able to borrow a child within this universe still remains a daily miracle in my life. There is beauty in innocence. Sadly, the fragility of the soul and the infinite potential of a newborn are threatened because of contamination by society, but the beauty of innocence remains.
