Bronze statue of a shepherd boy (or gardener's boy) with a dog - the dog is the emblem of Quedlinburg - on the column standing in the centre of a hexagonal limestone basin. On the front of the column, is the Quedlinburg coat of arms and on the back was the family crest of the founder, a sailing ship with billowing sails (it is cut off).
