Devil figures by Dana Westpfahl

From 2019 to 2023, Unterschleißheim sculptor Dana Westpfahl dedicated her creativity to the figuration of evil in the form of the devil. During this time, she created a series of two dozen diabolical busts. Her variations of the prince of hell show him as an approachable and puppet-like character.
The exhibition features 24 figures that have never before been shown in public as a group.
