Fasnacht figure "Wilder"
As part of the repeatedly mentioned Schleicherlaufen, the traditional Fasnacht custom occurring only every five years, the „wild men“ play a special role for the Schleicher group as vigilantes. The fearful figures are encased in garments made from „tree beard“ - that is, tree lichen - and carry gnarled wooden masks. In the middle of the roundabout in Obermarktstraße, a giant „wild man“ cast from aluminum sits enthroned. The figure was made by the sculptor Bernhard Dietl.
