The gift of motherhood stems from love, from the very act of conception, and grows stronger and stronger during the months spent in the warm, protective embrace of the woman’s womb, finally coming to light and life as a new being.
This expectant mother’s welcoming posture communicates how strongly she is rooted to the earth and her beliefs, and illustrates her awareness of the life that is coming into being within her.
The extraordinary experience of pregnancy belongs both to the mother and to the creature being nurtured and developing in her womb.
We perceive a unity and a fusion of two living textures: lotus and fibre, symbolising the exchange of matter, energy and soul born of the exquisitely deep union between a man and a woman. The merging of their two souls culminates in their readiness to dedicate their lives and themselves to their child, fruit of their spiritual and bodily love.
