Marble Bathroom in the Karlsaue Park

A decade later a pavilion was added on to the west side of the building. This contained the marble bathroom, intended to house the sculptures and relief work done by Etienne Monnot.

Monnot’s artistic works depict the metamorphoses of the Roman poet Ovid, including Daphne’s transformation into a bay tree. The bay trees in the Orangery were never removed and served as a reminder of this.

The sensuality of Monnot’s Figures made of smooth, gleaming Carrara marble is enhanced by their valuable surroundings.
