About this artwork
“The Württemberger locked him up:
What did Wolf Eberstein do?
He rode from the castle
down to the Murg
to the steepest edge of the cliff.
There the world was clear of enemies,
there he blasted into the Murg:
God keep you, Eberstein.
Such bold flight brings no shame,
The enemies themselves rejoice.
He came down without trouble.
Then he rode away, free was the man.
See if he can do it like that.”
