Mother and Child restored

The expressive image with the title Mother and child by Dutch visual artist Carel Visser has recently been restored by foundry Binders. The artwork will be placed on 20 in May 2019 at the same location on the sculpture terrace of the Westersingel. Mother and child is a composite work in which Visser - as always - merged found objects and waste materials into a whole that was cast in bronze. It is a humorous and painful sculpture. Does the mother cherish or devour the child, referring to various myths and fairy tales.
