Description

The fountain in the shape of a candlestick. A candle shaft protrudes from a truncated cone-shaped foot, on which a cross is attached as a flame. The monument has a filigree structure made of ears of corn, vine leaves and grapes. Beech leaves can also be seen in the foot. In it there are three medallions depicting the ministry of the church: sermon, baptism and communion, and diakonia. Three scenes from the Bible are depicted in the pillar: Zacchaeus, the little tax collector whom Jesus asks to get down from the tree because he wants to stop by, the washing of the feet and the return of the prodigal son. At the top is the crucifix instead of the candle flame.
