Long Description:
The Hansen tomb by Hans Dammann, created in 1909, in the Ohlsdorf cemetery shows a kneeling female figure on a cuboid, unadorned pedestal. The right hand, which drops a flower, is unfortunately no longer preserved. The figure of light marble is worked in detail, which is especially evident in the elaborate folds of the dress. In addition to the quiet melancholy of mourning, the figure radiates purity and youth, further emphasized by the radiant material.

Dimensions: Marble, 208 x 470 cm, Figure 110 x 90 cm

Hans Dammann (* June 16, 1867 in Proskau, Oppeln County, Silesia; † June 15, 1942 in Berlin) was a German sculptor.
After his schooling, he attended the Technical University of Hanover from 1885 to 1888. In October 1888 he transferred from there to the Royal Academy of Arts in Berlin. There he studied until April 1895 with Albert Wolff, Ernst Herter, Peter Breuer and Gerhard Janensch, among others.
