First sketch of Breast Feeding Mother
A small ceramic work came to our hands in quite good condition. Nándor Wagner was commissioned in 1956 to create a statue for maternity hospital. He made several versions and one of them and this has turned up unexpectedly. The theme itself was one his favourite during his life, he composed schematically, figurative, realistic in standing, sitting and even in globular position. The latter became his landmark piece the Mother Earth (Boshizo furusato and Földanya) as he gave different names to them.
