The limestone statue on Rheinauhafen depicts a muscular man securing a heavy rope to a bollard as if securing a ship to the harbour. The beautiful statue is a reminder of Cologne's maritime history although it dates back only to the last century.
While walking into the magnificent Harbour Christmas Market we came across this superb statue and what a great find.
The statue depicts a man making a rope ,it's location in the dock and harbour area is significant and the Sculpure looks really good.
