Wegner Grotto

Wedding Cake

Paul and Matilda Wegner celebrated their 50th anniversary in 1935 and built this tiered sculpture to celebrate. For several years they placed their wedding photos on top of the sculpture. It was the last project they would create together before Paul died in 1937. Matilda would continue embellishing the sculptures and finishing the pieces for several years until her death in 1942.
