Hans Volker Dursy: Hlg. Drei Könige,
Dreikönigstraße , 68723Schwetzingen
The sculpture to the Three Kings high above in a building niche marks the entrance to Dreikönigstraße. Hans Volker Dursy has depicted the Wise Men from in front, very much in the here and now, and not as highly spiritual participants in a Christian portrayal. Indeed, the customary references to Christmas and the nativity are missing. With the “inverse” arrangement of the figures' by age, Dury presents a symbol of wisdom with the aged Balthazar representing the past, Melchior the present, and a young Caspar the future.
