Where can I find this in Berlin?
We see the impressive, popular figure of a man. He’s standing lateral, slightly elevated by a step next to a stone pillar. He’s looking down at the observer over his right shoulder. His glance is distanced and proud. His face is dominated by his double chin, round cheeks and his thick red-brown hair. No less impressive is the black brocade fabric, lavishly wrapped around him like a frock coat. He is carrying a sword on his left.
