During our short trip to Munich in April, we visited the Nymphenburg Palace and Gardens. We really enjoyed wandering around the beautiful sculptured gardens and surrounding woodlands but it was this statue that really caught my eye.
This is one of several mythological figures sculpted for the palace by Dominik Auliczek between 1777 and 1778. At first, I thought it might be Poseidon or Neptune, having mistaken his sceptre for a trident, but at his feet lay his trusted three-headed hellhound Cerberus.
Also known as Hades, Pluto was the ruler of the Underworld.
In other news, my PC has been fixed! It needed a new power supply and graphics card but it is all up and running again and I have access to my photos, music and Photoshop again! Can I just say that Le Husband was pretty awesome in getting in fixed for me!
