Steigerwald born in 1918 in Duisburg, is perhaps the most famous artist of the Church in the German-speaking world.

After joining in the Deaconesses mother house "Hebron" Sister Dorothea began in addition to her work as a kindergarten teacher and nurse, taught sculpture. In 1963 was the plastic "Keep his child" known through the Christian world. In 1980 Steigerwald was released after over 40 years’ service in the nursery. Since then she is dedicated to all her artistic mission.

Postcards and calendars with pictures of their work millions of copies and are at home in meetinghouses and Christian living rooms around the world. Our security in the hands of God is her main theme: "I want simply to tell people that there is someone who loves them."

For her selfless work and commitment to children Steigerwald was awarded the Federal cross of merit in 1989. Despite her success, she has remained always modest: "This is not my merit, that I can do it, but is a gift."

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.

Marble powder bound by a polymer. Artificial marble is characterized by a fine white surface that comes very close to marble.
