Jordan; East Africa / Armand Duchâteau; Three faces of Afro-Cuban motherhood / Rogelio Martinez Furé. From the website of the New York Public Library: "From the earliest sculpture of sub-Saharan Africa through the 20th century, one of the most dominant and recurring themes is that of the mother and child. These sculptures generally portray the mother as a nurturing presence, a symbol of strength and a source of power. Despite the fact that African peoples share a common respect for the relationship between mother and child, representation of that relationship has varied significantly among Africa's diverse cultures and religions. The exhibition Mother Africa: Masterpieces of African Art celebrates that diversity with the presentation of 50 unique sculptures selected primarily from the collection of Reynold C. Kerr."
