A mother carries her baby as she goes about her cooking. A food seller, she attends to her baby even as she prepares her meal to be sold. A true mother never leaves her crying child unattended to. This is what this Nigerian mother exhibits here. In spite of the pressures of her work, she still takes care of her baby.
The picture also represents handyworks people do for a living and their importance of these artisans to everyday life. Everybody needs to eat. She may not represent the high or sophisticated class of the society, yet the society cannot do without her because she provides the people with food.
