The figure shows Siegfried (or Sigurd) from the famous Nibelungen saga fighting the dragon.
Siegfried or Sigurd, the glorious dragon slayer, can be found in various songs and stories from European countries and is still considered the shining hero who bravely, bravely and invincibly moves out into the world to do great deeds for fame and fortune. His strength corresponds to his physical size. His sword Gram or Balmung, which was once created by the gods, is known. His horse Grani is a descendant of the eight-legged sleipnir. The most famous story is the overcoming of the dragon Fafnir. A bath in the blood of the slain kite (lindworm) horns his skin so that no weapon can hurt or kill him anymore. He eats the roasted heart of the dragon and understands the language of the birds, which immediately warn him of his foster father, the greedy blacksmith Regin. Only at one point on his back is he still vulnerable: when he took a bath in the dragon's blood, there was a linden leaf on one place on his back. This spot under his shoulder blade later fatalized him when the treacherous Hagen's spear pierced him from behind at a water source (the sword of Gutthorm in the Wolsungen).
Made and cast from polyresin (artificial stone). The figure is fully cast and not hollow and covered with real bronze.
