English: Statue of Archangel Michael
  • There are two versions of this statue: one inside the Electoral Palace of Bonn, another outside on top of the Koblenzer Tor.
  • Creation year: 1750, sculptor: Willem Rottermondt (1701–1755)
  • St Michael the archangel, dressed somewhat like a Roman soldier, about to slay the devil (in the form of a dragon) with a fiery sword. He has a shield with the Latin phrase QUIS UT DEUS? "Who is like unto God?", which is a literal translation of the Hebrew name Mi-Ka-'El מי־כאל .
