“Der Sieger” (“The Winner”) is one of the main pieces from Oskar Höfinger’s oeuvre around 1970. The figure is designed from the center outwards and has no specific angle from which it should be viewed or positioned. Depending on how it is set up, it resembles a person jubilantly cheering, a footballer, a high jumper, a javelin thrower, and more. It made sense, therefore, that this sculpture would be commissioned as a monumental version reaching about 10 ft in height to mark the occasion of the Winter Olympics in Innsbruck in 1976, and installed in Admont (Styria). The human energy radiates outward; the figure seems to expand to fill the space around it and conveys a great sense of self-confidence and inner balance. The sculpture depicted here is fashioned in bronze and reaches a height of 45 ¼ in. It is suited for installation both indoors and outdoors.
