Description

Bronze sculpture of a recalcitrant goat and two boys.

Until 1902, Dülmen was divided into five districts, named after the main roads. The Borken road bears this name only since the Second World War, as it is referred to in the previous 400 years as Neustraße (New Street). Many households in this quarter were holding goats in the 19th century, hence the nickname "Siegenvedel" (goat quarter). The sculpture of the recalcitrant goat refers to this past

It was raining very heavy when we visited Dülmen, thus the photos are not so good...

(An identical sculpture is in Werne an der Lippe (click here) and in the Dutch town of Vriezenveen (click here).
