Sandstone decor

The entrance area is about the profession of stonemasonry. The profession of stonemasonry itself is ancient. Talented stonemasons were often "sculptors", i.e. artists. Beautifully hewn sandstone decorations of houses that only rich citizens could afford adorn the wall next to the stairs in the entrance area. Those who were born into a stonemason's family in Eberbach usually took over their father's trade.
