Lladro Contentment (Gres) Limited edition of 2,000 units
A new creation inspired by the original one (Contentment), made in matte porcelain. This new version in gres enhances the tenderness of this mother and child. The rich enamels and the warm light of this highly expressive material inject new life into a piece full of natural charm. And its special texture makes it the perfect medium to suggest the feel and look of human skin.
Contentment is a scene in which motherhood is greatly highlighted, and not just for the decorative elements that earmark it for our innovation line, but also for the fact that it is one of the very few busts in the Lladro catalogue.
In fact, it is precisely the bust format that underscores the high sculptural value of the piece. The mother’s face, whose expression of contentment lends its name to the piece, the delicate tenderness with which she embraces her child, the placid sleep of the recently born baby, are elements showcasing the sculptor’s mastery in capturing all these subtle expressions.
