  • This is a statue of one of the most illustrious Saxony king, Frederick Augustus II who was in power from 1836 to 1854 till his accidental death when a horse overstepped on his head after he fell down from the horseback. The statue is on a square padestal that has four figures on four sides representing king's passion on multifaceted areas like science, music, art etc. In the sculpture, Augustus is seen carrying a paper in his right hand which signifies his role in framing the criminal code.
