Ghanaian artist Bukola Eyitayo works with acrylics to paint a touching composition as a tribute to his mother. "A mighty tree has its source from the roots, so also a man has his roots from his biological parent, his mother," says Eyitayo as he presents this pictorial metaphor. "An African adage says, 'A river that forgets its source must surely run dry.' I will not forget my roots or my source. Mother, I will live to remember you always. The pains, the anguish, the travail that our mothers go through, they make everlasting bonds between them and their children."
