Tour through the park

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

Diana (by J. B. Hagenauer)

The moon goddess Diana was venerated above all as the patroness of hunting and is thus mostly portrayed as a huntress accompanied by her hounds. Here she simply holds a short portion of her bow, like the figure of Apollo who faces her, as a reference to the classical statues that served as their models and which over the course of the centuries have suffered substantial losses to their original form.
