#21 sculpture park

A sculpture park on the Dämmchen that has been started a few years ago is particularly worth seeing. It was developed by the Oebisfeld Heimatverein.
The idea for this came from a saw saw by the Audorf chainsaw artist Klaus Otte in the courtyard. From a mighty oak trunk he created the Oebisfeld heraldic animal, the owl, in over two days of work. He gave this sculpture to the Oebisfeld Heimatverein.
The idea of building a sculpture park was very well received by the owners of the area on the little dam. With their approval, the design of the sculpture park was then designed and implemented.
In the same year, in addition to the owl, there was also a war memorial in the cemetery that had been neglected in parts for decades.
At the same time, a commemorative plaque designed by the Heimatverein for the partnership between Oebisfelde and the Polish city of Lidzbark was set up. This plate was manufactured and sponsored by the company Natursteinwerke Vorsfelde.
The start of the sculpture park was rounded off with the installation of a sundial. However, it was destroyed by vandalism shortly afterwards.
Further objects were added in the following years. For example, the fragment of a demolished bridge that spanned the Mittelland Canal near Buchhorst and other wooden sculptures depicting an osprey and a beaver, both of which are located in Drömling.
Another special object is the „double wing“ made of sandstone by the internationally known Japanese artist Norio Takaoka.
He had made it in 1998 during a symposium in the former Velpker quarry Körner.
After the quarries went bankrupt, some works of art remained on the company premises and were almost forgotten.
After years of efforts, the Heimatverein finally succeeded in bringing this object to Oebisfelde and having it installed here.
Several local companies were involved in setting up the sculptures, helping the Heimatverein to design the park.
On the northeastern edge of the sculpture park is a memorial of the Association of Expellees to the victims of flight and expulsion from the former German eastern regions.
In the next few years, further objects are to complete this area.
