Der Rufer is believed to have been inspired when the artist was standing beside a man who called across a river to attract the ferryman on the other side. The sculpture in the Cultural Centre is one of a number produced by the artist, including one erected in Berlin in 1989 shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall, where The Caller is said to be calling ‘peace’.
