This painting of a woman breastfeeding an old man in a cell sold 30 million euros. The painting may look perverse but the story behind it is from historical records. The man was sentenced for stealing a loaf of bread during the reign of Louis the xiv in France. The woman was his only daughter and the only person allowed to visit him in his cell.
She was allowed to visit him daily but was frisked thoroughly such that no food was taken to him.
When after 4 months the man survived with no weight loss, the authority were perplexed and started spying on her in the cell and to their utter astonishment they found her to be breastfeeding her father to the fullest sharing her baby's milk. The judges then realizing the compassion and love she had for her father decided to pardon the father and set him free.
This piece of history brings into focus how deep a woman's compassion in our daily lives is and yet men tend to overlook... May God bless our women for us. ððââððð
