Sculptural Installation "Ludwig II."

To commemorate King Ludwigs II 173rd birthday, an art installation by Professor Ottmar Hörl will be on show in the grounds of Nymphenburg Palace this summer, showing a near life-size three-dimensional portrait of the King.

The multiple was modelled on the bronze bust erected in 1986 on the Herzogstand mountain (Kochel am See) at an altitude of 1575 metres, which was one of the monarch’s favourite spots. Hörl placed a hundred serial busts on a table-like wooden construction measuring 40 metres in length, 6.75 metres in width, and 1.10 metres in height, to create a unique contemporary large-scale sculpture, where the busts are at eye level with visitors and look in different directions.

King Ludwig II of Bavaria was born at Nymphenburg Palace on 25 August 1845. The castles he built have attracted millions of visitors and inspired generations of people worldwide.The Bayreuth Festival would certainly not have been founded without Ludwig II. Thus, the ruler from the House of Wittelsbach created a sensational success story for Bavaria, Europe, the whole world, and not to forget, tourism.

Until 30th September 2018 the Ludwig II sculptures can be admired in the Nymphenburg Palace in Munich.

If you are interested in a sculpture, you can get in the Ottmar Hörl Online Shop.
