Welcome to Bassenheim Horseman

The Bassenheim Horseman is one of the most famous representations of Martinus in art history. Once made for the west door of Mainz Cathedral, the canon Kasimir Wandbott von Bassenheim brought it from Mainz to Bassenheim in 1683 and saved it from destruction. Today, the work of art by the Naumburg master has its home in the Bassenheim church where it has already been admired by many visitors.
