Nice figure , I‘d not go especially go for her to this place (downtown Bamberg) but after seeing her „she“ (=me) liked the cream cake or Bamberger 🥐 at the Café nearby 😀

In 1998 Bamberg had a project called this sculpture way. Due to many donators bamberg was able to buy the lying lady. For us the lying lady in Bamberg and the horse in Berlin are our favorite sculptures from this artist.

This Fernando Botero sculpture of "Female Lying with Fruit" graces a small square in Bamberg Altstadt. Worth stopping by for a look, especially as there are not many Boteros on permanent display in Germany.

It is a bronze sculpture at the edge of a nice square. There is a nice Café behind it which serves good ice cafe.

This is a very nice "Botero". This artist usually made some fat people scultures. Is beautifull and funny to find a Botero in a German city. I suggested to put a English legend also for the sculture (only deutsh provided).

We visited Germany during the Christmas markets. This statue looked as I felt after many sausages and Gluhwein! Made for a great photo.

One of the greatest artists from South America. We love his works, we visited his museum in Bogota. This sculpture was bought by the city in 1998 and this is also a great attraction of Bamberg.
