We end this month observation of our Mothers’ with David Antonio Cruz’s ode to his mother in “The Puerto Rican Pieta”. This excellent oil painting from 2006 shows Cruz lying across his mother peacefully in her arms as she gently holds him. Her face, that of confidence and strength, give us a glimpse into their relationship. She is a mother who loves and cherishes her son and he, a son who is content to lay in the arms of his mother, his first love.
