Keeping All Moms in My Thoughts Today

Happy Mother’s Day 2011

My favorite Allan Houser sculpture at the Denver Botanic Gardens is this one called “Singing Heart.” I love everything about it.

Houser completed this bronze in 1994 and it’s a wonderful example of what could be called “The Houser Style.” I appreciate the rounded form and wonder how he was able to create the texture of the mother’s shawl wrapped around her baby. Even though Singing Heart depicts one mother with her child, I feel like it represents all mothers and their children, and perhaps even Mother Earth herself.
