Ãidinrakkaus (Maternal Love)
Bronze sculpture (1927) by sculptor Emil Cedercreutz (1879 - 1949).
Photographed at Varsapuistikko,
at the corner of Unioninkatu and Kaisaniemenkatu, Kluuvi,
in Helsinki, Finland.
I love this sculpture. Does anyone know who the artist is, its name and anything else about this piece? (I can't find anything on the web to share with you).
If anyone wants to know, it's next to MetsÃ¤talo, in Kaisaniemi.
Artist is Emil Cedercreutz, whose favorite subject were horses.

I also find it intriguing how there's a bronze of a bull moose down the park promenade some half a mile away; having a cow and calf moose here and the bull moose there would have been a beautiful example of art imitating nature even more.
