After the death of his childhood friend, the Swabian sculptor Johann Heinrich Dannecker made the decision: "... I want to bring Schiller to life, but he cannot be any other than colossal. Schiller has to live colossally in sculpture ..."
This decision was shaped by the desire to create a worthy monument not only to the genius of the poet, but also to the personality of the friend. The original of this bust in Carrara marble was made between 1805 and 1810. An authentic plaster cast is now in the Duchess Anna Amalia Library in Weimar.
