Breker or Thorak?

I've seen this work attributed to Arno Breker, an ardent National Socialist and the 
better known of the two primary sculptors who produced Nazi public art during the 
1933-45 period.  It is, however, by Thorak.  I think the confusion comes from the fact 
that the subject of this one isn't as brutally overdeveloped as most of Thorak's work.



  1. I have seen this sculpture referenced via a comic book or fantasy art illustration. I'm sure of it. It's on the edge of my memory.

  2. Ein Soldat des Todes und der Zerstorung, kein Soldat des Shutzes und der Freiheit, wie ich es in Osterreich war.
