The bronze sculptures "Design for a great figure I and VI" as well as "Polyanthe" were created by Dietrich Klinge (born 1954 in Heiligenstadt). The three larger-than-life female figures seem heavy and at the same time graceful with unusual gestures in different postures. "Draft for a Great Figure I" throws his arms up to the sky with a slight twist of his upper body, "Polyanthe" brings her hands together in an arch above her head, "Design for a Great Figure VI" finally makes a bridge with her body. Arranged are the three sculptures in an exciting triangle.
