The time spent under mother’s care is past, once again she shows her son the path he must from now on tread alone and by his own efforts.
Edition in bronze, cast using the lost wax technique, chased and patinated by hand.

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.
