Young Mother With Sturdy Shoes: Advice


I have been asked for an interpretation of this work, so here it is:

The figure is a young mother (the tressses of her hair have not yet formed into the birds that represent the experiences of the past and of the future: she is new to motherhood and is entirely focussed on the present). She is constantly (seven birds - every day) being offered well-meaning advice (berries). As she is well-centred, she is able to listen to her inner voice (leaning her head against the spiral curl) and intuitively know which advice to accept (the berries in her arms) and which to discard (those on the ground around her feet).
