No better protection in the world than that once offered by mother: the proverbial apron strings in her hand, she leads the child gently into the world.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.
Manfred Welzel looks back on an impressive work presented in many international exhibitions. Welzel's sculptures speak directly to their viewers; he avoids unnecessary abstraction and holds true to representational figures; his compositions always keep to the narrow middle path between everyday scenes and unobtrusive universality.
