Florian Pohlmann: The „Felsentor“ Eagle of Sanssouci Park – Exposition Suggestion and an Overview of Methods for Indoor Assembly Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The eagle spreading across 4 meters was secured from the “Felsentor” gate and afterwards
stored in the Fachhochschule Potsdam. The sculpture showing severel structural and surface
damage, portrays an eagle with spread wings catching a snake. Three major damages are of
focus in this Bachelor Thesis. Firstly the microoganism damaged plinth, secondly the
mechanically damaged sculpture formed of zinc plates located above the plinth and thirdly the
porous, multilayer coating which detaches itself in big slices from the bird and snake. After
evaluating the requirements of a new location of assembly, the structural problems of the
plinth are theoretically solved. Furthermore this Thesis discusses the consolidation of the
coating by using synthetic resins. Lastly the reassembly of loosened snake parts is mentioned.


Keywords: Sanssouci, Felsentor, Mühlenberg, Maulbeerallee, structurally strengthening, supporting frame, zinc, brazing, driving zinc, consolidation, consolidation resins, Polyvinylacetat, Polymethylmethacrylat, epoxy resin foam.
