Nail man at the Feldererhaus in Vienna

The nail man (Wehrmann in Eisen) was erected in 1915, to raise funds for widows and orphans of fallen soldiers. Each donor was allowed to drive a nail into the wooden figure. Today the figure is located under the arcades of the Felderhaus next to the Vienna City Hall. [German]
