Mother Nursing Her Child
Comments - Charming image of a young mother nursing her child. She looks down with a sweet smile as she holds the toddler on her lap. She wears a striped kimono with with a black collar over a red under robe with a purple tie-dyed collar, tied with an olive green obi patterned with phoenixes and clouds. A toy cat rests on the floor behind her. An attractive portrait of motherhood.
