What? Is this gift truly for me? That's very kind of you! I wonder what's inside! The adorable Hummel Girl is looking the admirer directly in the eyes. It is as if she wanted to give the admirer the gift directly.
The delightful Hummel child with a sled full of gifts was carfted by sculptor Helmut Fischer in 2003.
Hummel figurines have been made by hand in Germany, as the label says, since 1935, in Rodental in Franconia. The Hummel factory base their figurines on German Franciscan Sister M. I. Hummel's original sketches. Born Berta Hummel in the Bavarian town of Massing, Maria Innocentia Hummel completed her education at the Academy of Arts in Munich with top grades. Her sketches of children, which she saw in everyday situations, at play or in nature, are world-famous. Only the Hummel Factory is authorized to use Sister Hummel's sketches as a template and inspiration for figurines.
