A sculpture of young Albrecht Duerer stands at the exhibition entrance in the Germanisches Museum in Nuremberg, Germany, Tuesday, May 22. The sculpture is based on the self-portrait the young Duerer drew of himself. The sculptor portrayed the 'child prodigy' around 1880, when Duerer became the primary hero of German art. The statue was believed to have been destroyed in WWII. It was re-discovered in the gardens of the American Academy in Berlin. Germany's biggest exhibit of works by the German artist Albrecht Duerer will open to the public from May 24 until September 2.
