Tour through the park

Also the boskets were decorated with statues by Christian Willhelm Beyer and Johann Baptist Hagenauer.

Apollo (by J. B. Hagenauer)

Apollo is portrayed as a martial god loosing the arrows with which he slew the earth-dragon Python, here shown coiled around the tree trunk. In her jealousy, Juno had commanded the serpent to pursue the Titaness Leto, a lover of Jupiter and mother of Apollo and Diana. Apollo subsequently built the Oracle at Delphi, whose prophetess was called Pythia, over the cleft in the earth out of which the serpent had issued.
