According to the design of the architect Gottfried Kastl, the sculptor Bernd Maro realized a semicircular fountain made out of sandstone. The scene „girl and animals“ is of bronze and appears very true to life. The shepherd girl is portrayed idealised, how she feeds the domestic animals with devotion. The hop pole on the column of bronze symbolizes the trade with hops and the various breweries in town. The rural scene is believed to remember the variety of craftsmen and day labourer, in Münder, who often were without any property.
Their keeping of animals like chicken, ducks, geese, goats and pigs –sometimes even cows – was essential for a modest existence. The distribution of livestock and real estate within the population (see Kornhus) indicates the imbalance between the different classes.
The dedication of the fountain was celebrated in November 1990.
