Bronze statue of a man shouting with his hands next to his mouth. On the sides of the base plate is a quote from Petrarca:
DURCH DIE WELT
FRIEDE FRIEDE FRIEDE
(I wander through the world and cry ‘Peace, peace, peace')
Other castings of the "Der Rufer" have been erected in various places around the world. Marcks never committed himself to a particular interpretation of his sculpture; while Berlin read its message as a call for peace, the sculpture put up in Perth, Australia, was dedicated to victims of torture. The original sculpture was made for Radio Bremen.
