My daughter was pregnant and it was on my mind. In many primitive(so called) cultures of the world the artists created a symbol to ensure the agricultural harvest and the continuation of life. These small sculptures could be found in the painted caves of France, among the African Tribes and as far away as ancient Native ruins of central and South America. It strikes me as a curiosity the physical similarities of the sculptures and the universal desire to recognize and utilize the female ability to recreate life.
