I am not a mother. Yet we are commanded to ‘multiply and replenish the earth’. In this picture I am crying because I am worried and afraid about the awesome responsibility of being a mother someday. But Nephi writes that “the Lord giveth no commandments unto the children of men, save he shall prepare a way for them that they may accomplish the thing which he commandeth them.” -1 Nephi 3:7
The original etching is called a 'sugarlift'. It was created by painting on the copper plate with sugar, then removing with boiling water and etching in acid before running through the printing press.
This is a high quality giclee print.
