Bronze sculpture on a pedestal, which is part of a bench.
Mathies was a boy who often stopped by the studio of Hans and Erika Dinnendahl in Telgte and who died very close by because of a car accident. The sculptor created the sculpture with the expressive face of the child in 1948. There are altogether five casts. Another copy is in Emmerich.
