14 Ernst Rietschel Bust on Brühl’s Terrace in Dresden, Germany

About halfway along Brühl’s Terrace you will encounter a bronze bust. This is the likeness of Ernst Friedrich August Rietschel. He was a prolific and influential sculptor of German monuments during the 19th century. The statue was created by Johannes Schilling, the same man who crafted the Four Times a Day ensemble. On the right is the octagonal dome of the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. Locals teasingly call it the Lemon Squeezer. On top is a winged figure blowing a trumpet. This is Pheme from Greek mythology (or the Roman version Fama), the personification of fame and gossip.
