"Mayan Madonna" by Emanuel H. Enriquez.
The bronze replica of "Mayan Madonna" which was presented to renown actor Edward James Olmos.

"Mayan Madonna is sitting in a familiar pose, depicting the love and affection a mother has for her child. However, wanting to go beyond the obvious and deeper into the strength of the mother herself with less emphasis on the baby. I sculpted the mother oversized, not in a Reuben's soft, fleshy style, but in a solid, stronger frame, broadening the shoulders and accentuating the muscles. The hair is pulled back in a neat, but intricate bun that does not obstruct the shoulders. Continuing in the overall strength, I broadened the hips to give her a solid sitting form. The base and sculpture are one piece that roughly resembles a pyramid, creating a metaphor for strength and stability. "
