When the first M. I. Hummel figurines were made in 1935, the Goebel master sculptors were Reinhold Unger and Arthur Moeller. At the time Unger had worked for Goebel for about 20 years. He sculpted actively until the mid-1950's and is responsible for about 100 different Hummel figurine molds. It could be said that his creativity and expert craftsmanship set standards and laid the foundation for what became the some of the most famous figurine lines of all time.
Sister (Hummel) Innocentia worked with both Unger and Moeller with Unger specializing in the sculpted interpretations of her religious works, angels, madonnas, nativities, forest shrine, and saints.
