Mother-Daughter Fountain

Mother-Daughter Fountain

“Mother and Daughter” shows a mother playfully holding a fish away from her daughter, representative of the mother’s struggle to keep her daughter from crossing the threshold into adulthood. The fish is symbolic of life’s ideals. It was made for a Bavarian nobleman by Munich artist, Richard Aigher. He was stranded after World War II in Paris, where he had come to cast the statue in bronze. The work caught the eye of Oklahoman J.J. Culbertson Jr., who bought it and eventually donated it to the Rose Garden in Will Rogers Park in Oklahoma City in 1950 and installed as a part of the fountain.
