480 hours and 50 square metres of Hahnemuhle 300gsm German new cotton paper was needed for this work. It is suspended from a 9-metre-high atrium and stands 3.1 metres high by 3.6 metres wide and 0.6 metres deep.
It stands for the nurturing, love and encouragement of mothers the world over toward their children, represented by the smaller “fledgling”. The larger “mother” figure caringly holds its arms around the young one protectively, but not to hold it captive, so it may learn to “fly” on its own and reach the fullness of its life potential.
