Sculpture of a Reblaus in Gumpoldskirchen

Memorial plaque to Hans Moser in Gumpoldskirchen, Austria

This fun sculpture is placed next to a memorial plaque to the Austrian actor Hans Moser. Schulpture and plaque are located in Gumpoldskirchen, a centre of wineries south of Vienna. Besides his movies and plays Hans Moser became famous for singing a song about the ‘Reblaus’ (‘Pyhlloxera’).

The Pyhlloxera is a pest for grapevines. The sculpture should obviously portray such a Reblaus. Not sure about the accuracy though.
