6 Rathaus Courtyard Soldier Carvings in Basel, Switzerland

There are twelve faces of Renaissance soldiers carved on the window frames of the inner courtyard of the Rathaus Town Hall in Basel, Switzerland. I assume they represent the 12 cantons that formed the Swiss Confederation in 1501. They were sculpted by Wilhelm Balmer and Franz Bauer in 1903.
