A Hellenistic terracotta statue of a mother carrying her child. The mother is depicted leaning forward, straining under the weight of her child who is in turn quite oversized. These finely moulded figures, often highly decorated, rose in popularity during the 4th and 3rd centuries B.C. Common themes include fashionable women, gods and goddesses, heroic athletes, and bacchanalian merriment.
