621 Steinbach Nutcracker King Arthur
Arthur-King Arthur (Limited Edition 10.000) Even in East Germany there
used to be King Arthur Societies. The legend of this noble and
courageous king and the gallant “Knights of his Roundtable< seems
to re-captivate the imagination of every new generation. It is a legend
that combines mythological Celtic elements with tales from German
folklore that date back to the Middle Ages.
The original historical “Arthur”
was a British tribal warrior leader around 500 AD, who protected his
people against the invading enemy. His mythical magical sword “Excalibur<c
— which, according to the legend, he drew out of a giant stone —
conquered love and death. His famous residence, the castle Camelot, was
the dowry of his beautiful wife Guinevere. Countless adventure films
dramatize his external and internal battles for justice as wel as the
many dangerous ordeals and exploits in which he tempted fate. Among them
is the account of Arthur being abducted and brought by ship to the
legendary fairy-island of “Avalon” after having been wounded and
betrayed by his faithless clan.
Like all legendary heroes, Arthur is
immortal — just like our old German Kaiser Barbarossa, who supposedly
still holds court in a cave deep in the Kyffhauser Montains and will one
day come back again. King Arthur of Avalon too will return again
in all his power and glory to usher in an era of eternal peace, harmony
and unending prosperity!
