Long Description:
"Die Mariensäule am Tittmoninger Stadtplatz

ist ein Werk des Tittmoninger Bildhauers Johann Georg Itzlfeldner aus dem Jahre 1758. Gestiftet wurde die Skulptur vom Schiffmeister und Handelsmann Johann Michael Wilhelmseder (1729-1787), der 1755 Maria Elisabeth Standlin aus Laufen heiratete. Vielleicht lag der Stiftung der fromme Wunsch nach einer glücklichen, kinderreichen Ehe zugrunde, da das Allianzwappen beider Familien auf der Schauseite des Sockels dargestellt ist. Die Inschrift "Mater Del VIrgo sIne Labe Con Cepta" bedeutet "Mutter Gottes, Jungrau, ohne Sünde empfangen" und zeigt als Chronogramm die lateinische Zahl MDCCLVIII oder das Jahr 1758.

-----

The Mariensäule at Tittmoninger Stadtplatz

is a work of the Tittmoninger sculptor Johann Georg Itzlfeldner from the year 1758. The sculpture was donated by the shipmaster and merchant Johann Michael Wilhelmseder (1729-1787), who married Maria Elisabeth Standlin from Laufen in 1755. Perhaps the foundation was based on the pious desire for a happy, child-rich marriage, as the alliance's arms of both families are depicted on the show side of the pedestal. The inscription "Mater Del VIrgo sIne Labe Con Cepta" means "Mother of God, Maiden, received without sin" and shows the Latin number MDCCLVIII or the year 1758 as a chronogram.
