Prompt: Creating a memorial/monument about any topic I'm passionate about. It could be personal or global but somehow the theme should be universal.

Many are forgotten by history, but one that hits me closest is mothers. Mothers have been responsible for raising the next generation for the longest but were never recognized. This monument of motherhood represents two things. On one side, it highlights the forgotten history of motherhood with a God-like portrayal of a woman with graceful wings and dress. On the other hand, it holds a mirror, reflecting the audience that will be seeing this monument in the future, who are the very outcomes of mothers in the past. The statue is about celebrating the uncelebrated, and remembering the forgotten.
