The Mother Anna Fierling

This is my last family member. The most important person in the story. Her name is Anna Fierling also known as:



 If anyone wants to hear more of her story and that of her children you have to buy Bert Brecht's  "mother courage and her children". It is no easy lecture but worth it.
Here is my mother courage. The figures are 1:9th scale (about 7.5 inches tall) as I had to put them into the right scale for the wagon.

She is very expressive, she looks like a woman who is able to work. Very well done.
