Re: A mother and her children

Fantastic picture!

Sometimes I wonder what it would look like if it wasn't black'n'white but sepia (brown-white) or even coloured. Beads are colourful and probably textile, too.
Do you think she has some scars on forehead or these are just wrinkles for a bit surprised image?

Re: A mother and her children

The reproduction quality is lame, so we'll never know.  Gwyn thought the mother was one of the most beautiful women she'd ever seen. 

I kept looking at that expression and thinking ... "whoa the baby just kicked really hard" or "opps ... water broke ... gotta go now".
