The Friends of the Ita Wegman Institute are pleased to be able to offer scale models (1:500) of the First and Second Goetheanum. The models were created by Leonhard Schuster from plasticine, then cast with high-quality casting compound, and patinated. All steps are done by hand. The models are about 9 cm high, 18 cm long, and 17 cm wide.
Additionally, a casting is available of Rudolf Steiner’s „Urmodell“ [earliest model] of the double domes, as well as a smaller casting of Rudolf Steiner’s concept for the 2nd Goetheanum, which was not realized because of restrictions in the building codes at that time. A casting of Rudolf Steiner’s model for the large path markers is also available, as well as a casting of Edith Maryon’s bust of Christ from the so-called 2 m model of the sculpture group, the Representative of Humanity. A small copy by Fritz Schaper of a bust of Novalis is also available.

Proceeds from sales go to support the work and publications of the Ita Wegman Institute for Basic Anthroposophical Research (Arlesheim).
