Stone sculpture of a man with a bull.
der stadt zürich gewidmet
stadtbaumeister von 1876-1907.
At his death the city architect Arnold Geiser (1844-1909) left behind a legacy 'for a monument to beautify the city.' The city organised a competition under the Zürich artists. The winner, Jacob Brüllmann was surprisingly not from Zürich, but citizen of Weinfelden and living in Stuttgart. The foundations for the massive sculpture was designed by the architect Jean Freytag. On 20 October 1911, the entire monument was passed as 'Stierbändiger-Brunnen' (Bull Tamer Fountain) to the public.
