This is the embodiment of the values that are taught to all African women in Africa.
The woman is showing humility and respect by kneeling and wearing a head scarf around her head. She kneels as she serves food to her in-laws, as this shows her respect for them. The head scarf conveys the same message too.
She carries her baby on her back and a long towel is used to strap the baby on her back. This creates a strong bond between mother and child. By having the child strapped to her back, this leaves the mother's hands free to do other chores.
On her head, she carries a clay pot. Clay pots can carry water and food, symbolizing the African mother's duty is to prepare food for her family.
