This original painting is a small 8 x 10 oil on canvas. The photo was taken at an orphanage in Africa, but the photographer is not sure if the child is an orphan or the mother and child are orphans, or the girl is simply the caretaker of an orphan. The girl is young and is carrying the child in the typical wrapping of a child in a cloth "back pack" style often called wrap around slings. The clothes of the the girl are worn and dirty, but her beauty supersedes any concern of what she is wearing. This painting raises many questions to the viewer and makes the viewer realize how differently mothers can care for their young. The neutral colors of this painting will be beautiful in any home setting. This painting is offered as an original, 8 x 10 giclee print matted or unmatted and an 11 x 14 giclee print matted or unmatted.

Matted Giclee 8x10 Print has Archival ink, matted is acid free and measures 14 x 16.
Matted Giclee 11x14 Print has Archival ink, matted is acid free and measures 16 x 20.
