Overall in many countries we value women and our mothers and we use this celebration to show them how much we love them. In Santa Cruz, Bolivia there is a monument that I like very much. It represents the beauty and strength of the indigenous mothers in Bolivia:
The monument of "La Madre India" (the indigenous mother) was created in 1978 by David Paz Ramos. He was inspired by seeing a little child in the plaza running frightened into his mother's arms. The indigenous woman held him tight and saving him from any threats.
If you see the mother's expression, she seems ready to defend her child from anything. I'm not sure if they are from the Ayorean or Guaraní culture, but anyways I wanted to share this beautiful monument with you.
A few dates for mother's day celebration:
Bolivia - May 27th
USA, Germany, Hong Kong - Second Sunday in May, this year May 9th
Mexico - May 10th
Don't forget to call your mom and let her know how much you love her! Also don't forget your wife, grandmother and your mother in law!
