    Singing Hare by Carmen Stahlschmidt 2012
    The statement of the French composer Paul Satie "Do you hear the hare singing?" Was the impulse for the work of Oppenheim living artist.
    The abstracted rabbit looks very natural and tremendously alive. He allows a variety of associations, ranging from the mythical creature "Master Lamp" to the Easter Bunny. Last but not least, the hare belongs to the cultural landscape of Rheinhessen as an original steppe animal.

    Honeymoon for young and old
    Company Picard 2012
    Through a deep, buzzing exhale tones are generated in the buzzing holes and experienced in a sensual way.
    Humming stones of various cultures have been associated with healing and meditation for millennia. The curative educator and artist Hugo Kükelhaus (1900-1984) saw it as an experiential field of the senses. The entire arrangement around the summit stone, a Buntsandstein from the Palatinate, invites you to linger with balancing trunks and resting benches.

    Tower jumpers by Andreas Heimling 2011
    The skippers of the Palatinate artist, more than two meters wide, almost two-dimensional steel sculptures, show no realistic replicas of women's bodies. The outlines are edgy, the surfaces appear like a fabric of triangles. Despite the rigid lines, they seem graceful and athletic in their extraordinary movement, fixed in a snapshot of the take-off. The comparatively elaborate high stand with balcony now receives a new function as a complete installation, which does not show it as a stare defense, but as a springboard "into a sea of vines and wine".

    Wonnefrau by Eckhart Schembs 2009
    Graceful, sublime and relaxed, the Wonn artist's merry woman sits amidst the vineyards, contemplating the beautiful landscape of the Wonnegau, which, just like her, appears lush and fertile.
    The Wonnefrau can be understood as an embodiment of the landscape, which finds its mirror in the sensual, nude female figure.

    Dream of the Stare by Detlef Rohrbach 2009
    A star becomes the aggressor of the defensive system directed against him. With all his might, he flies to the pulpit of the high stand, splits and destroys it. The artist with a studio near Oppenheim has created it quite realistically out of plastic. Its oversized size changes the effect. The otherwise inconspicuous little bird becomes powerful and defends itself against the menace. Finally, the function of the high stand reverses. He himself becomes hunted and the star emerges victorious.

    Son of Birgit Helmy
    The sculpture "son" of the Wiesbaden artist looks with unobstructed view over the Abenheim sculpture path into the vine landscape around Abenheim. The red pants form a contrast in color to the environment; the upper body is naked and on the back the figure wears a grape chest.
    By "son" is meant no son of wine, but a young man; a tall figure, in contrast to the numerous female and small male figures she has created recently.

    These works of art are all part of the Abenheim Sculpture Trail, a project of the local Heimatverein. It was opened in 2009, is about 4 km long and offers a wide panoramic view of the Odenwald over the Rhine plain to the Palatinate Forest and also the Worms Cathedral can be seen in the distance.

    The starting point is a four-meter high stand, formerly used for star defense, which the Wingert contactor climbed with the ladder at the time, and then, with a shotgun pistol, fired the starlings in the fall. This form of star defense has long been a thing of the past, as it has been working with electronic defense for decades. Abenheim came up with the idea of providing these high stands to artists only a few years ago.

    The shrine "Heiliger Kilian" by Gustav Nonnenmacher 1972
    The shrine, first mentioned in 1650, is a testimony of religious tradition. For the pilgrims of the Rhine Hessian Way of St. James, he became a place of worship. In 1972, the old shrine, which can still be seen in Abenheim's museum, was replaced by "Heiligen Kilian", a sculpture made of shell limestone by Worms sculptor Gustav Nonnenmacher.
    The patron saint of winemakers, who is otherwise rather unusual for our region, blesses transient people with his raised hand. He is equipped as a bishop with miter and staff, next to him are as an indication of his special function vine and grape.
