Long Description:

Zwischen 1837 und 1939 wurden Brunnenmädchen eingestellt, die den Kurgästen an den Heilquellen das Wasser servierten. Auch hatten sie darauf zu achten, daß die Homburger selbst nur das festgesetzte Quantum des Heilwassers in Flaschen und Krüge abfüllten.
Der Bildhauer Prof. Richard Hess gab der lebensgroßen Bronzeskulptur die Gestalt eines unbeschwerten, lebensfrohen Mädchens, das sich recht keck ihr Strumpfband richtet. Sie entstand 1994 und wurde durch eine Spendenaktion finanziert.

Between 1837 and 1939 girls were employed, who served spa guests the water at the mineral springs. They also had to make sure, that the Homburg citizens filled only the fixed quantum of healing water in bottles and jars for themselves.
The sculptor Prof. Richard Hess designed the life-sized bronze sculpture of a carefree, fun-loving girl who quite boldly arranges her garter. It was created in 1994 and financed by a fundraising campaign.
