Mini Original Painting - Honey Watercolour on Paper - 67x67mm - Framed
This is a symbolic painting about complicated mother-daughter relationship. It's inspired by a painful clash of what one generation believes to be the ultimate virtue and the damage caused by the sacrifices that complying with their values and trying to 'fit in' bring upon the individual.
The nettle, cinnamon, vanilla and raspberries are commonly used to enhance fertility. The young girl depicted here is being adorned with these herbs by the determined, embracing (suffocating) mother figure.
