This Mother's Day, tour the galleries of the MFAH to explore the diversity of mother-and-child representations throughout the museum's art collections. Click here to download a handy self-guided tour.

Since ancient times, the image of mother and child has appeared in art around the world. From symbols of fertility to reflections of wealth and status, the theme of mother and child has evolved but endured. The motif's appeal still rings true today, as it captures a moment of unparalleled significance in the cycle of life.
