Mother Christmas?

In amongst all the hype and myth and frenzy of this season light is a strong theme as is family, feasting, and decorating using specific seasonal symbols  accompanied by the wish for peace and love.

It would seem to me that in this mix, there is a mother figure, warm and comforting. She is the hug whose embrace is soul warming, she is the voice that calms our fears and she is the kiss that makes it all better. She is the light in a dark night and the soft voice that whispers to us in our dreams. She is love.

Could this be she? The thought occurred when this little gnome came into being.

  1. What a beautiful job you did with this figure! I especially like the face on your mother gnome – there is a real caring expression on her face.
