Marktbrunnen mit Michaelsfigur
Market Fountain with statue of Saint Michael
Archangel, the field commander of the Army of God. He is often depicted slaying Satan represented as a dragon, and with a shield with text quis ut deus (Who is like God?, a literal translation of the name Michael).
Stone figure of St. Michael
The original statie of Michael of c. 1606 was destroyed in World War II.
Saint Michael and the dragon
The motif of Michael and the dragon appears in Michael's fight with Samael in the Assumption of Moses, a Jewish apocryphal work.
The characteristic difference with the other dragonslayer saint George is that Michael as an angel is always depicted with wings.
- Hermann Paul Simon,
sculptor from Bernkastel, living in Köln.
