Three bronze larger-than-life-sized figures, forming an allegorical interpretation of human ingenuity. They show, though facially not identifiable at first glance and therefore be understood allegorically, in the middle of 'Beethoven' in athletic shape, the powerful arms crossed over his chest, as he was ready to clear all resistance out of the way. He is accompanied by two female figures, symbols of inner voices: on the left 'Meditating' and on the right 'Calling', shown as graceful, amazonian women.
