People With No Names - The Undocumented #94

This is 24" x 24" oil on board.  As I looked at this image I realized that the mother appears in her gesture to be 'giving a benediction' or 'blessing' her baby.  Perhaps, the act of immigration could be seen as a benediction or blessing on the immigrant's children/family.  "May the Lord bless you and keep I go out into the wilderness to find work...until we are reunited again."
