The bronze sculpture Weinende Frau is at the same time a fountain that was created for this site, rather the site with its brickwork was created for this relief. On a small knoll in a sheltered corner of the park, the visitor is confronted with the motif of a very private situation: weeping. We can think of this fountain figure — out of whose mouth water also streams — as a water dispenser and her abstract physiognomy as the theme of the cardinal humor of melancholy that the visitor encounters on his walk through the park.
