674 Steinbach Nutcracker Water Carrier
When people come to Nuremberg they go
to ))Golden Fountain.< They may turn the little golden ring three
times and taste the water of life, which often leads to amusing spilling
and splashing with strangers.
Then our merry old water carrier is
there to lend a hand. He’s often called Aquarius because of his star
sign. The wondrous water has been the source of life for us all ever
since Babylonian times. In many places it has healing powers — and our
Aquarius here is bringing the water for beauty! What for? Well, for the
baking of the famous gingerbread women of course. A real nutcracker
loves his sweet gingerbread women with her large flirtatious ‘almond
eyes Oh, don’t her eyes like raisins glow with love and happiness (Findeisen).
Water of beauty — water of beauty —
you don’t have to go to Paris to find it! Our Aquarius has two buckets
full of pure nature on hand. Happily he stands in front of you — you
only have to firmly believe in it.
