Capital Tower

Mother & Child 34

Sculpture, Bronze, 118x115x25cm , 2001
Artist:  Han Meilin (b.1936), China
Location:  Capital Tower Level 1, Singapore


Chinese artist Han Meilin has done more than 60 bronze works of the mother and child theme, all celebrating the intimacy between mother and child albeit with different expressions. In this work, a mother with a long pigtail in a kneeling position is lifting her child as if he or she is the most important person in the world and this is undoubtedly so in her mind. The form is stylised; the mother’s lankiness and the child’s chubbiness contrast with each other.
