LLADRO THE FATHER porcelain figurine with gift box.
Sculptor: Ernest Massuet, Released 2008
Size: 22 x 27 cm
This amazing matte porcelain piece elaborately depicts the Father who is sitting crossed legged with a new born baby in his lap.
The figurine captures a tender and protective gesture where the father gazes lovingly down upon the new born child nested between his legs without however embracing him as if to state his role of almighty guardian.
The offspring features a pose that evokes the womb.
Interesting contrast between the smooth porcelain of the two bodies and the coarse lap.
A stunning centre piece which will enrich any Home.
