"The Flower-Basket" (Blumenkörbchen)
Fröbel always thought highliy of the family which he considered as the
perfect Unity. Here you can see a family-idyll. "The Flower-Basket" (A 22)
show a mother and her children picking and collecting lilies in a basket. A
Flower-Basket is by Fröbel a symbol of the family. The father is "resting
and thinking" in a pavilion. Maybe this time he is some sort of
intellectual, maybe it is Fröbel himself. The flowers of the frame points at
the Virgin Mary. There are Roses and Field-Bind-Weed, both dedicated to her.
