Rhea Kybele

Tour through the park

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

Rhea Kybele

Opposite the Beautiful Well is Beyer’s Rhea Cybele, mistress of wooded mountains and wild animals that dwell in them, but also foundress of fortified cities, symbolised here by her mural crown. On the shorter side of the hedged enclosure around the Angel Fountain are statues of Eurydice and Cincinnatus, both executed by Beyer.
