The art features two women, presumably a lesbian couple, standing in a kitchen wearing robes and reading a Mother’s Day card.
The women are standing by a table with a bouquet of roses while three children peek around the corner to watch.
The artist is Chris Ware. He described the art on The New Yorker’s Culture Desk blog.
“Few people today don’t know, or have in their families, at least one loving couple who are raising children, same-sex or not. And it’s really just the loving part that matters. That same-sex marriage could go from its preliminary draft of 'diagnosable' to the final edit of 'so what?' must indicate some positive evolution on the part of the larger human consciousness.”
