Mother's Day
The Legendary "Baby Kiss": 
Mother and Child

Each of these mother and child segments are taken from a painting or sketch about John Brown, but only one of them is not based on the legendary theme of the Old Man kissing a baby on his way to the gallows.  It might be obvious, but can you guess which image it is and where it is from?

This entry rendered in honor of enslaved mothers in the United States, and their daughters and grand daughters who continued to struggle for freedom and justice  
in the "land of the grave, and the home of the tree."
