In the 21st Century Europe had to face a refugee wave and an increasing xenophobic development in the same time. The word “Gutmensch“ (do-gooder) came into discredit and people helping and welcoming refugees were attacked. It was a time in human history where it was questioned if being good is a good thing. This figurine has a heart-shaped body and a very soft expression. Rituals with this figurine were held to anchor the wish and human ability to be good and live like this.
