From amClicks: New exclusive reference Kloster Eberbach Foundation

"The existence of a state winery in Eberbach Abbey dates back almost 900 years, when the French Cistercian monk Bernard de Fontaine founded this monastery in the small German town of Eltville am Rhein, in the state of Hesse, which is the current owner. since 1945 both the winery and the land on which its vineyards are located. However, since 1998, what is actually the abbey has been separated from the winery and has become managed by a foundation (Stiftung Kloster Eberbach). As a curious fact, several scenes from 'The Name of the Rose' were filmed inside this abbey.

This year marks 25 years of existence of this institution and, with the collaboration of Playmobil, they are going to publish a beautiful reference that will contain one of those Cistercian monks who founded it back in 1136, along with a wild boar, which, curiously, It is the animal that appears on the coat of arms of the city of Eberbach (state of Baden-Wurttemberg). Your reference number, 71398 ."

That's a nice looking figure. Eber means boar in German, so makes sense. Very interesting to see the garb of a different religious order make an appearance.

Oh wow, that is a must have

Thanks for the news
If you hear the sound of the bell which will tell you that Grigori has been killed, if it was your relations who have wrought my death, then no one in the family will remain alive. They will be killed by the Russian people. :prays:

I think they are black, the sandals. And that's a new colour for tonsured hair!
A lovely figure.

I love any religious figure - but expect it only to be available on site, on the 4th Thursday of every month unless it's a full moon.

He does look lovely, which probably means he'll be near-impossible to buy.
