Two Mothers, Frans Stracké, 1893

terracotta (clay material), h 90.0cm × w 33.0cm × d 33.0cm. More details

This sweet scene reflects increasing interest in the lives of fishermen. The statue shows a young woman holding her child, with her dog’s puppies gathered in her apron. Yet life is not a bed of roses for this barefoot fisherman’s wife. She has only two fish in her pouch, and the net that she drags behind her is empty.
