About This Project

The building is listed and registered at the Bavarian State Department of Historical Monuments. It was painted in 1891 by master painter Josef Widman (born in Traunstein) and in 1979 renovated by the Traunstein master painter Hans Petersen who is still in business.

 The center of the facade painting is the Patrona Bavariae. In Bavaria, Maria, Mother of God is patron saint like the terms says Patrona Bavariae. Childlike figures (left and right) hold the symbols for medical science. Left -   the rod of asclepsius and right -  the bowl of Hygieía (Hygieá or Hygeá, daughter of Asclepsius). The figures don't have wings like angels because their attributes come from the pagan Ancient World. In their other hands they hold laurel wreaths to adore Virgin Mary. Over Virgin Mary you see the divine crown.
