Breastfeeding, Tenderness and Love/2012/oil on canvas/145cm×225cm
Appreciation: Mother is who gives birth and feeds life. Peruvians worship Inti, the god of sun, as well as Panchemama, the earth mother. Peruvian artist Augusto Garcia Penalva was born in Cuzco (literally "navel," in a figurative meaning "center"), the capital of ancient Inca Empire, which is a fertile and magical place nurturing life. In Penalva’s painting, Breastfeeding, Tenderness and Love, three Peruvian mothers and their children compose with the Andes Mountain. The figures of mothers are gentle, kind, vigorous and exaggerated. They are just like the earth mother, feeding children with milk, taking care of their health and holding them in the arms. （Wang Yong）
