Geocache Description:


Zënter 1972 steet am Préizerdaul eng Skulptur vum Frantz Kinnen, déi de Renert mam Bier duerstellt. “De Renert oder de Fuuß am Frack an a Ma’nsgrëßt“ ass eng Déierefabel vum Michel Rodange (1827 – 1876) a gëllt als gréisst Stéck Literatur a Lëtzebuerger Sprooch vum 19e Joerhonnert. De Michel Rodange huet en hommage un d’Lëtzebuerger Géigende gemaach, mee och ee Spottgedicht op d’Lëtzebuerger Gesellschaft. De Bier ass am Préizerdaul doheem an weist hin op ee Regierungsmember vun där Zäit deen aus der Géigend koum a wahrscheinlech och duerch säi Behuelen opgefall war…

De Frantz Kinnen (1905-1979) war e Moler, Sculpteur, Glasmoler, Buchillustrateur a Karikaturist. 1972 huet hien de Renert matt Zeechnungen illustréiert (Renert A Biller) an d’Skulptur am Préizerdaul entworf.

This sculpture has been made by Frantz Kinnen in 1972 and shows two characters , the fox and the bear, from the famous epic satirical tale “Renert oder de Fuuß am Frack an a Ma’nsgrëßt“ in Luxembourgish language by Michel Rodange (1827 – 1876) The work is known for its insightful analysis of the characteristics of the people in Luxembourg. The bear stands for a politician who had his origins in this region and most certainly had shown some funny behaviour… Frantz Kinnen(1905-1979) was a painter, draftsman, sculptor and illustrator. In 1972 he illustrated the “Renert” with his own drawings.
