Soon I will again travel to Vienna, this time for the unveiling of the restored 1934 statue by my grandfather, Josef Josephu. His St. Francis of Assisi, originally created and unveiled in 1934, is getting restored – and will be moved to Vienna’s Lainzer Tiergarten, near its original spot but a little closer to the beautiful and historical Hermesvilla. The unveling is schedule for the morninng of October 3rd, 2022. Look here for a report and photos on the event. The photo below is from its unveiling in 1934, along with some of Josef working on his sculpture.
