Als Material für die Statue dienten übrigens alte Geschützrohre türkischer Kriegsschiffe, die in der Seeschlacht von Navarion 1827 versenkt wurden. Diese wurden geborgen, mit Ochsenkarren über den Brenner transportiert und letztendlich in der Königlichen Erzgießerei zur Bavaria gegossen. ### By the way: the material used for creating the statue was old cannons from Turkish warships, which were sunk in the Battle of Navarion in 1827. These were recovered, transported over the "Brenner" by ox cart and ultimately formed to the Bavaria in the royal foundry.
