The Brothers Grimm National Monument was designed and built by the professor and sculptor Syrius Eberle. After his model was only voted third place by a jury, complaints started to arise, so the son of Wilhelm Grimm was asked to pick the one he liked the best out of the three highest-ranked models. Since his choice fell on Syrius Eberles´ model he was commissioned to build the monument.
