This piece shows the special bond between a mother and her baby. New Beginnings represents the start of a new life and the new bond never before experienced. Since 2006, Lladro has collaborated with Operation Smile, a humanitarian organization dedicated to the cure of children ravaged by facial deformities. This piece is a special version of an existing piece, featuring a pendant heart decorated in gold in honor of Operation Smile's worthy cause. For every New Beginnings sculpture sold, Lladro will donate the amount necessary to provide one surgery to one child. In addition, 10% of all proceeds from The Daughter and The Son pieces will also be donated to the non-profit organization.
The scene is depicted with a natural point of view, a very intimate and joyful moment. This is a very sculptural piece, taking the chance to represent a feminine body bare of any adornment, as a synthesis of the pure meaning of the scene. Set on a square wooden base in natural color. Base included 16.5in H x 7.75in L
