The Three Fates ~ Bronze
Sculptor ~ Professor Josef Wackerle
The fountain is situated near the Leeson Street entrance to St. Stephens Green, Dublin, Ireland. It consists of a group of three bronze figures – representing the Three Fates, who weave and measure the thread of man’s destiny.
The statue was a gift offered by Roman Herzog, President of the Federal Republic of Germany at the time.
The engraving on the plaque is in German, Irish and English:
German: In Dankbarkeit für die Hilfe, die das irische Volk deutschen Kindern nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg gewährte
Irish: Le buíochas as an gcabhair a thug muintir na hÉireann do pháistí Gearmánacha tar éis an Dara Cogadh Domhanda
