“And do not forsake your mother’s teaching” (Proverbs 1:8)

I am taking this injunction and exploring the teachings by example of Biblical and post-Biblical women from traditional sources.
In this project I have created a life-size sculpture (from epoxy and polystyrene) of a youth, reading a book of relevant quotations from the Jewish Scriptures.
I chose a boy rather than a girl, because the Jewish tradition tends to focus on learning passed down from father to son. In this piece I want to divert that focus, and shine a light on mother-son (and mother-daughter) teachings, to remind ourselves of this instruction from Proverbs, and to bring it to the fore.
