    Sculpture in the park of Blomberg Castle, erected in 2000, artist Bärbel Dieckmann, Bielefeld. The Blomberger landmark in the roundabout also came from her.
    The meaning of the jacket division:
    Saint Martin shares his coat with the beggar.
    Around the year 334 - Martin was 18 years old - the young man was stationed in Amiens, France. On a cold winter day, an unclothed man asks the people passing by for a donation. Martin, who doesn't have much, but asks himself how he can help the poor, unceremoniously divides his cloak with a sword and gives half to the freezer.
    The division of the soldier's mantle with the beggar and its recognition - carried out in Martin's dream - by Christ himself as a religious act of love is called the "scene of charity". Martin, who has not yet been baptized, consequently acts according to Christ's interpretation of God's commandment to love: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself" (Mk 12, 31; Mt, 22, 39) and in the dream receives the confirmation of Christ: "What you do to the least my brothers do, you did that to me ”(Mt 25:40). The consequence of Christian life illuminates in Martin's actions.
