Sculptural installation "Celtic Prince"

On 8 October 2018, Boris Rhein, Minister of Arts and Culture, unveiled a sculptural installation featuring 25 Celtic Princes standing against the backdrop of the Alte Oper opera house in Frankfurt.

The original-size sculptures are a tribute to the 2,500-year-old Celtic Prince of Glauberg, a life-size sandstone figure with a striking, ear-shaped headgear and inviting the public to take a closer look at the fascinating settlement find. The Celtic Princes were on display in Opernplatz square until 14 October. Then they are going their separate ways for some time: from 15 to 29 October, the sculptures will be presented in selected businesses and public buildings in the Rhine-Main region, to be reunited as a group at Frankfurt's Römerberg from 30 October to 5 November, to promote the "Kultur in Hessen" [Culture in Hesse] campaign.
