Adelheid means “of noble form”. The title is a placeholder for (historical) notions of gender role.
Pewter figures, primary men, represent historical situations. Usually they depict military power structures in faithful replica. It is less about individuals than about the roles that people fulfil in life. Men are mostly presented as soldiers or as heroic figures. Women figures are rarely to find and present society ladies dancing and being represented, servants and maids going about their daily work, pornographic subjects and mothers with their children – usually women serving others. To produce this sculpture, Lindinger and Rosenberger searched various archives, collecting all of the female figures. These found objects were melted down to make the sculpture of Adelheid.
