Description

Statue of a boy with a falcon in his left hand.

Only five years after it was unvleid, the sculpture was dismantled in 1944 to be melted down for war. However, in 1954 it was rediscovered. The bronze was found with many other artworks on the grounds of the North German Affinierie in Hamburg Alsterstraße. For Dahlienschau, on 17 September 1955, the falconry boy was set up again at the old location.
