Description

This work is probably a model for a garden statue that came from Castle Neuwartenburg near Vocklabruck. Castle Neuwartenburg was built from plans by Domenico Martinelli, with frescoes by Altomonte and sculpted decorations of the doorway and gardens by Lorenzo Matiellli (who also designed the door figures of the Cloisters at Melk and St. Michael's church in Vienna). The completion and dedication of the castle took place in 1732 with a personal visit by Emperor Karl VI. The statue was never executed, and the model remained in the castle.
