Bronze torso of Sebastian on a trapezium shape concrete socle.
In the 1980s Ernst Reinhart Böhlig worked intensively with the torso motif. An example of this design is Boehlig's confrontation with Sebastian. Böhlig called his work not clearly as "Saint Sebastian", but plays with the name of this martyr who is usually represented tied to a tree and shot with arrows. Obliquely on a pedestal, neither sitting nor lying down, with a distorted expression, in the park on Berliner Platz modeled you find the cracked, mutilated body of Sebastian.
- Ernst-Reinhart Böhlig (Ländchen/Wohla bei Dresden 1947),
German sculptor of Albstadt
