Added DiffLines:

* During the UsefulNote/FrenchRevolution, before the iconography of ''Marianne'' properly evolved, the French Republic was often [[AnthropomorphicPersonification personified]] as a mother, which provided a useful excuse to show her with one or both breasts bared.
* In the crypt of the ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monument_to_the_Battle_of_the_Nations Völkerschlachtsdenkmal]]'' in Leipzig, which was completed in 1913 for the hundredth anniversary of the [[UsefulNotes/NapoleonicWars Battle of Nations]], there are four giant statues allegorizing patriotic virtues. One of them, ''Volkskraft'' ("strength of the people", which apparently means fertility) is a mother suckling two children.

* The role of large lady Hattie Jacques on ''HancocksHalfHour'' was, as often as not, to be motherly and comforting to TonyHancock and the boys, usually after some far-fetched get-rich-quick scheme had failed. She often tries to do this through food, even though she was not the world's best cook.

* TV archaeologist and historian Bettany Hughes is also a woman who gets close to the earth. Archaeologists bend over a lot whilst digging, trowelling or exploring with fingertips to get the Earth to give up its secrets of the past. Bettany has a lot in common with [[GroundForce Charlie Dimmock]] when on digs, especially in the warm sunny climes she favours such as Greece, Egypt and the Middle East. Hey, there's a lot of archaeology and history there. And shorts, flimsy low-cut t-shirts or vests are mandatory in hot climates.

If afflicted or badly aspected, can shade into the JewishMother or the MyBelovedSmother. And bear in mind the flipside of BrawnHilda is a vengeful Valkyrie with a very big spear. Compare and contrast ApronMatron.

A [[MotherNature goddess of the earth/nature/fertility/motherhood]] is more often than not an example of this trope. If an Earth Mother is afflicted or badly aspected, she can shade into the JewishMother or the MyBelovedSmother. And bear in mind the flipside of BrawnHilda is a vengeful Valkyrie with a very big spear. Compare and contrast ApronMatron.

* Eva Wilt in Tom Sharpe's ''{{Wilt}}'' series. A larger-than-life mother of quadruplet daughters and wife to Henry. Although she is a prime example of the cranky underappreciated kind of Earth Mother.
