At the invitation of the hessian state chancellery, Ottmar Hoerl installed four thousand red and white lions. The animal from the state coat of arms in the colors of the hessian flag were transferred to a three dimensional figure and presented as a large sculpture - a 'painting' - before the state chancellery. 'The idea of this painting, this large sculpture, is broken down into a solitary quality of identification. Individuals can take home the figure of the hessian lion as a kind of inspiration. They can connect highly individual stories with it. As a traditional sculpture the figure of the lion is conceived in a way adequate to the animal on the coat of arms. It is thus not a modern version or a paraphrase. It is tied to its origin and established constants as a bridge across nearly eight countries.'
