The Monument in Frankfurt

This monument is located near the shopping center of Frankfurt in Germany. As far as I can remember, near the mall named Die Zechein des Buddhas. It is a very interesting figure that I cannot stop clicking my pocket camera. I tried to find in my picture files if there is a name for this figure but sorry guys, I did not found any. Anyone out there who knows about this?

taken during my meeting with the Congressman of North Cotabato, Philippines and his family in Frankfurt, Germany.

Thanks to my friend Art for this information about this monument. Please find the infos from Art below..truly appreciated my friend.

It is a modern depiction of David after he slew Goliath. It was sculpted by Richard Hess and in 1983 was placed near the Hauptwache at the entrance to the Zeil. The Zeil as I am sure you are aware is the premier shopping area of Frankfurt. It is sometimes referred to as The 5th Avenue of Frankfurt.

Lily---This is Art, thank you for another challenge in the way of another statue to figure out. I have seen this many times on my trips to Frankfurt but I never knew exactly what it was. It is a modern depiction of David after he slew Goliath. It was sculpted by Richard Hess and in 1983 was placed near the Hauptwache at the entrance to the Zeil. The Zeil as I am sure you are aware is the premier shopping area of Frankfurt. It is sometimes referred to as The 5th Avenue of Frankfurt. Again thanks for the fun search. I will watch for more. Keep up the good work....Art
