Miner Pyramid with Chime by Werkstätte Volker Füchtner
The best known representatives of the Erzgebirge are the angel and the miner (engel und bergmann). The miner's handsome parade uniform belies his dangerous work deep in the mines of the Ore Mountain. Fortunately, the miner had an angel to protect him. Both the miner and angel bear light, in the form of candles, as a means of illuminating the underground and as a symbol of life.
This miner is a candleholder, a pyramid, and a delicate chime. As the warm air rises from the candles, the pyramid's vanes turn, causing a small wooden hammer to strike the chime's bell once each revolution. Don't miss the tiny angels on the platform just below the vanes.
Made by Werkstätte Volker Füchtner in Seiffen, this piece is approximately 16" tall.
