Description

Statue of bishop Konrad with a book, standing on a lion. On the sides of his head and feet are the coats of arms (both with wrong colours) of the Archbishopric of Mainz (a white wheel in a red field) and of Bishop Konrad II. von Weinsberg of Mainz (I and IV bishopric of Mainz, II and III three silver shields on a red field). The statue is similar to the one of Konrad's epitaph in the Dom of Mainz.
