  1. Between 1954 and 1958, I lived in the court featuring the statuary and was always intrigued as well as haunted by them. I remember them fondly now.

  2. Hello.

    Those two sculptures “Fishing” and “Music” were made by my great grandfather who came to the US from Germany.I would really like to come and see them but I do not know how to find where you are located. I met my great grandfather.He passed away in 1980.I would have been turning 8 years old that year. My great grandfaher was Karl Hermann Kahlich.I did try to look for where you are located some time back but I got lost. I very much would love to see those as I am thankful they are still around .
