You see this walking over the bridge over the Elbe. It's hard to "see" it well as sculpture since the gold is so glinty at night under artificial light. There is a small cast of it in bronze in the Residenz.

Nice guilted statue of King Augustus II (The strong) from the 17th century. He is the one responsible for many of Dresden's baroque treasures.
