Today there is only a short contribution.
We have moved in the last few weeks and are now back in our old home. Shortly after unpacking the last boxes, I got on my bike and paid a visit to the Widow Bollmann.
In Brandenburg, there is the legend of Fritze Bollmann, a grumpy barber who falls into the lake during a fishing trip and drowns. Shortly afterwards, he has an interesting chat with Peter at the pearly gates.
At the beginning of the 20th century, a statue of Galatea surrounded by four tritons was erected next to a monument to Fritze Bollmann. This legendary figure of the seas was renamed Witwe Bollman by the people of Brandenburg because of its direct proximity to the so-called Bollman Fountain.
The Baroque figure, which was created in the 17th century, now stands on the Dominsel in Brandenburg. There I have scanned her and the surrounding tritons and am preparing to publish the figures. However, as this will take a little longer, here are some preview pictures.
As soon as the processing of the scans is completed, and I have made a test printout, a more comprehensive article will appear here on the blog. Perhaps even with a reconstruction of the former structure of the figure group.
