Description

Scuplture group in two parts: a half-figure on a round column and a figure with a flapping coat standing on a square column, at the foot of which sits a figure on a few steps.

The artist herself did not give a name to the group of three bronze sculptures, she made for the Uelzen branch of the Landes-zentralbank. A popular name in Uelzen is "Goebbels" and "Batman", because the profile of one of the figures resembles Hitler's propaganda minister, while the other with his flapping coat seems to be set for flight, just as the bat-like comic book hero.

Doris Waschk-Balz herselfs sees it as "a figure in a dancing move, maybe battered by the wind and also rather unstable, which can in the next moment fly up or fall down."
