Witschen" dates from 1763,presumed made in a workshop in the neighbouring village
On the left hand side of the base , Johan Michael Bauer(1707 1779) -the "financer"
of the statue, had the following inscription added.: on studying the inscription
one notices that some of the letters are larger. “HANC STATUAM FUNDA / TOR IOH. MICH.
BAUR / EREXIT IN LOCO QUI / DICTITUR
IOHANNESBRUEKE / SUPRA VICUM ANNO DOMINI”

are roman numerical figures which tell, in correct order, the date of making; so
called chronogram: MDCCLXIII = 1763).
