Munich Child

Catalog No. 2006

Pottery, relief, 2.0L, pewter lid, signed “KB”.

Text:
“Wer nie bei einer vollen Mass, im Hofbräuhaus sass
der weiss es nicht welch grosse Gnad, der liebe Gott dem Bayern gab.”

(He who never sat with a full stein in the Hofbräuhaus
doesn’t know what a large favor the loving God gave to Bavaria.)

Created as the coat-of-arms or archival seal of Munich in 1239, the centrally depicted Münchner Kindl (Munich Child) has evolved from a hooded monk standing in front of Munich’s gate to a charming child and symbol of the city.
