Happy Mother's Day!

Glazed Stoneware Sculpture of Mother Bear and Cub (1957) by Knud Kyhn for Royal Copenhagen (LEO Design)

A loving thank you to all the women—mothers, step-mothers, aunts and educators—who have devoted their lives to nurturing and developing us.  Perhaps the most important of all vocations, mothering mostly toils-on despite too-infrequent expressions of gratitude (and even lower pay).  The best mothers will admit, rather promptly, that their reward can not be measured in words or money.  Nevertheless, we grateful beneficiaries, could certainly do a better job of expressing our humble gratitude.

The Danish Modernist sculpture, shown above, captures an ursine mum lifting her little one in a moment of playfulness.  It is sculpted in stoneware by Knud Kyhn for Royal Copenhagen and is dated 1957.  Click on the photo above to learn more about it.
