Fischpuddelchen

This fountain indicates that there used to be a fish market here. I found it very well done, the lifelike boy, clutching a brace of fish. This statue stands on Schmiedstrasse, close to the entrance of the Aachen Dom.

Makes me think of Little Hiawatha, The Great Hunter of Disney fame, Ayush.

Fine image, too.
Ayush Basu: I remember reading the poem decades ago, Ray. Thank you.
The Fisher King.
Ayush Basu: Clever choice of words, Michael

A fine statue mirroring the history of the place Ayush
Ayush Basu: You are right, Chris. I stayed for a while in Aachen and passed by frequently in front of this.

I love the expression on his face... That is a wonderful statue. Love the name and a good reminder of what was once there...
Ayush Basu: I like the cherubic feel to the boy, Astrid. A most competent job by the sculptor

Superbe, elle est magnifique et représente bien ce qu'il y était avant! Bise, bon samedi tout en douceur!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the message, Maria-Lina. I hope you had a good weekend.
He has to have a good grip for the moving fish.
Ayush Basu: He has them pinned down, Mary. smile
What a delightful little statue.
Ayush Basu: I like the cherubic features, Brian.

I can only guess where the fountain of water comes from! I hope he's got good grip on the slippery fish.
Ayush Basu: Haha, this is not the Manneken Pis of Brussels. The fish heads spout the water, Alan.
A clever little sculpture - gives the impression that the fish are still alive!
Ayush Basu: Yes, I like the pouting mouths, Tom.
He looks like Trump?
Ayush Basu: Given that he seems to be on the media forms so much, not unusual for us to see him everywhere, LC grin
That is a terrific little statue.
Ayush Basu: I agree, Michael. I like the cherubic face.
Quite an expression he's wearing!
Ayush Basu: A sign of clutching the fish since 1910, Elizabeth. I am guessing he is not letting go of the fish any time soon.
i have no idea where those places are Ayush... but this is a superb bronze sculpture of the boy with his fish....petersmile
Ayush Basu: We are still in Aachen, Germany, Peter. I had some Aachen sculpture photos in my archives. I like works like this, with more realism, than some abstract piece which is open to a lot of interpretation.
ghosts of fish past...
Ayush Basu: True, Larry. More than a hundred years old too!

Hopefully we'll see it later this year, Ayush, when we're there for the Christmas market!
