Wandering Wednesday – A Series Of Statues


Last time I had some pictures from one of the marble statues in the Alte Museum in Berlin, and I realized that I took pictures of all my favorites! So here is a collage of my favorite statues. I notice now there is a trend. ;)

I have one more weekend of trips, and then I am home until May. Thank goodness, I’m really exhausted from traveling. I never thought I would hear myself say such things!


From Top Left:

  1. Psyche, Bertel Thorvaldsen, 1806
  2. Pan comforting Psyche, Reinhold Begas, 1858.
  3. Psyche discovers Eros, 
  4. Statue of the Princesses Luise and Friederike of Prussia, Johann Gottfried Schadow, 1795-1797
  5. Bust of Victory, Christian Daniel Rauch
  6. Seated Victoria, Throwing a Wreath, Christian Daniel Rauch, 1836-1845
  7. Dornröschen, Louis Sußmann-Hellborn

I did my best to research the two unknowns above, but to no avail! If you know more about them feel free to let me know.

  1. Looks like #7 is Dornröschen by Louis Sußmann-Hellborn and #5 is Bust of Victory also by Christian Daniel Rauch.

  2. Amazing how much the artists’ styles and details differ. Christian Daniel Rauch appeals to me the most…
