Few bonds in life are more powerful than that between mother and child. It’s a special relationship that has been stressed since the beginning of time, and scientific studies have demonstrated the importance of the mother-child relationship and how it impacts both development of the child and of the mother. The bond is reinforced through a strong emotional connection created by hormonal levels during bonding experiences.

The relationship between a mother and her child has been immortalized in countless artworks, perhaps none more famous than Madonna and Child artworks from the Middle Ages. Due to its importance, it’s a common theme that appears in many art and other media.

Here, I’ve showcased some great photography examples showing mother-child relationships for a variety of species, not just humans.
