Maternal Love

Emil Cedercreutz

Unioninkatu is perhaps not the most peaceful nor unrefined jogging route, but it is a good connection to Kaisaniemi Park. Along the way, you can admire some horses. Locals are known to sometimes bring them hay. The tender relationship of a mare and foal was sculpted by an artist highly acclaimed by Marshal C.G.E. Mannerheim (1867-1951): “Anyone can make a sculpture of me, but only Emil Cedercreutz (1879-1949) can sculpt the horse underneath me.”
