Sculpture inspired by Shape Of A Mother

Hi everyone,

I wanted to post something a little different. I am a hobby Sculpter and was absolutely amazed to see such confidence, beauty and loving comments on this empowering website. I was feeling rather overwhelmed (in a good way) that something like this is here for all of us women to see that we are not alone. Our bodies are beautiful and it is incredible how much our bodies can stretch, grow and change all to provide the most important thing: life. I wanted to make a sculpture of what a real woman’s body looks like, rather than all of the computerized and airbrushed looking pictures that the media shows. I spent so much time deciding on what body type to sculpt; there is so much variety in our bodies! We are all so different, yet so the same, and that beauty is finally being seen on the Shape Of A Mother. Thanks, everyone, for posting your pictures and your stories. I feel so touched by many of the stories I have read here, and I felt so relieved to see that many other women feel the same way I do. I wanted to post pictures of the sculpture I made since this website is the sole reason why I made it and the source of my inspiration. Any feedback would be very welcomed.

    Lovely! Still, your sculpture depicts media perfect breasts … it would be nice to see something that depicts the beauty of those who’s breasts don’t fit that slim margin.

    I disagree, BC, while the breasts on this sculpture are relatively proportionate & even, many women possess such breasts. I am not one of them – my breasts are clearly 2 different sizes & shapes – but I’ve seen many Rubenesque beauties here, with valleys, curves and very even, perky breasts. I see the breasts on this piece as being heavy, full & experienced, even if the nipples do still face the sky. I love this piece.

    I agree with the first poster… The breasts are a little too perfect.. for the norm I believe! I have a D cup and well they dont do that on their own! lol
    However that being said! you are amazingly talented!!!

    I agree about the breasts. They are still in the hollywood box. Other than that its great!

    I have to agree with the initial poster. The breasts are perfect, unflawed and raised to the heavens… although some women have these to flaunt after, most do not. A couple pair of saggy bags would have made it a 10/10 in my world. The art is amazing though. Keep up your passion and creativity. :)

    That is a wonderful sculpture, wish I had some artistic talent :( … I can see that you do! I understand where B.C. is coming from those breasts are very perky, however, there are some women that get some belly sag but still have media perfect breasts, nothing wrong with that. Maybe next sculpture (hopefully there will be more) you could make them a little “different”, but a wonderful and beautiful job, bravo!

    Wow! This makes me smile…it is gorgeous in every form of the word.

    Thanks for the feedback everyone! I’m the one who posted this.
    I appreciate the comments about the breasts. It gives me a lot of ideas for my next piece! I see where everyone is coming from about the breasts and my next sculpture’s breasts will look a lot different.
    Just wanted to point out that the woman who this is modeled after was lactating at the time, and I wanted to capture the full, heavyness of them. Sorry I completely forgot to mention that in the post! I didn’t want to offend anyone.
    Thanks again.

    It is a wonderful work. I would volunteer to be a model for you!

    my breast looked like that when they had milk :) so i think it is a wonderful representation :)

    I think it’s beautiful,,, and as i can also see some of the POVs on the breasts,, you cant encompass EVERY woman in one sculpture anyways right?! :) so like someone said,, we hope there are many more to come. and jerryred,, mine too! I have always been a very perky full B cup (at five feet tall and 100lbs,, prolly the reason for not overly larges breasts) and when i was pregnant, went to D’s that looked similar to the sculpture,, I am now back to my Bs,,and they still look ok,, my husband still likes them ! lol :)
