Same style of scuptures are in several places along the Via Claudia. This one however makes himself most useful as pole for trailmarker. / Diese Art von Schnitzwerk sieht man oefter an der Via Claudia. Der hier macht sich besonders nuetzlich als Wegweiserpfosten.

Very unusual and interesting. I've never seen anything like it. They sometimes mark trails here with rocks stacked as an Inukshuk.

Inukshuks are traditional here too, on any long distance wilderness trails across ravines and ledges in the mountains. The apropriate southern german and austrian word is "Steinmanderl".

Those carved long roman soldiers in helmets seem to be a decorative speciality for roman stuff themed short turnouts along the 2000 year old road the romans built, archeological places that have regular interpretive markers with lots of written info as well. There is one in Altenstadt (which perhaps was Esco) in the park with the roman way pillar, one stands in Epfach (the confirmed ancient Abodiacum), and in the Forggensee overlook that explains the sunken roman log path in the mire before there was a dam lake are at least 3 or 4 of those dudes, so that one graces the fence of the Damasia dig site seems apropriate.
