Happy Easter

Mostly I get inspiration of stories told in The Bible or Mythology. These stories have a lot deeper layers which may have a link to current issues. I’m trying to catch these layers, to find the emotional or human touch in these two Pietas. I once heard a story about a mother who lost her son in an accident. In her mourning she produced mothermilk again. So these pietas refers to the mourning of Mary as well as her motherhood in Maria Lactans.
