Painter turned world-class sculptor Michael Cacnio encapsulates motherly love and parental devotion in his Mother and Child series. A pillar of social realism in Philippine sculpture, the brass master is largely inspired by Filipino values and traditions.

This dancing mother-and-daughter tandem can address the eye with the soaring power of a monument. The chief medium, which is brass, celebrates the richness of color. It gives his sculptures a bright high note as it draws attention to the not so decorative but elegant and graceful form.

His works are deeply personal and yet are three-dimensional celebrations of every day to which the audience can easily connect, which explains why his works are sought by collectors.
