Exterior, Neues Rathaus, Munich, Germany
The inscription on the left, Skt Benno Stadtpatron, means "St. Benno, Patron of the City." On the right are his dates. His mitre and crozier identify him as a bishop, and the fish in his right hand is his attribute.
Standing at Benno's left is the Münchner Kindl, the boy in a monk's habit who is pictured on the coat of arms of Munich. The shield at the base of the statue features Benno's fish on a background called "fusilly in bend argent and azure," denoting the state of Bavaria.
