BREASTFEEDING WAS A BEAUTIFUL AND A NATURAL THING THROUGHOUT HISTORY.
Many artists captured the close bond between a mother and the child in the most stunning ways imaginable. When you look at the photos in the gallery, you will feel overwhelmed with thoughts about motherhood, love, nature of our existence. You will be inspired.
So, I would love to share my thoughts when I first saw these magnificent creations.
I wonder if breastfeeding in public is appreciated as natural and a beautiful thing today? How often do we see images like these in the media?
Over-sexualisation of women’s breasts is considered to be normal, while there is a debate on whether breastfeeding should be seen in public?!
I blame the lack of knowledge for everything.About the importance of the rights, we have today.
To be free and to do whatever we want.
So, if you thought that art is not important- think again. It reflects our culture; it reflects what is considered to be beautiful and interesting.
Shouldn’t that be a sign that something is wrong? Even in the most controversial Eras people could appreciate beautiful pictures and sculptures of mothers feeding their babies, while now we discuss if it should be seen in public??
If we forget where we come from, there will be no progress.
Enjoy the photos and the beauty and FREEDOM they represent.
