Geg: v. Hugo Pelargus 1893 Stuttgart.


The original sculpture was made by Donndorf for Willi D. James in 1876, and was placed in 1891 on Union Square in New York. A second cast was given to the town of Zwittau (Svitavy, Czech Republic). The third cast was given by Donndorf to his native town of Weimar, and the fourth cast was placed in Stuttgart in 1898. In 1917 the Stuttgart copy was molten for the war industry. In 2008 a new cast was made after the copies in Weimar and Svitavy.
