Two marmer copies of antique statues:

Annotation

Both statues were placed at the entrance of the horticultural exhibition in 1870. For this exhibition King Karl of Württemberg had donated "two ancient statues in marble executed", which had previously been in the Royal Palace. They were part of the original sculptural features of the Stadtgarten, which also included the sculptures of the Four Seasons. In 1961 they were placed in the newly constructed Stadtgarten.
