The Luxembourg fox is a character invented by Michel RODANGE (1827-1876), who was inspired by GOETHE’s “Reineke Fuchs”. Now a national epic, his fable is a satirical description of the political figures of the time, through 14 songs in the Luxembourg language.
The original work, dating from 1932, is a joint creation of the sculptors DEMUTH and GROSBER, as a tribute to the national poet Michel RODANGE. The original sculpture of the “Renert” is kept in the Museum of the History of the City of Luxembourg, and was overmoulded in 1981 to give birth to the copy, standing on Place Guillaume. The work was entrusted to one of the most prestigious moulding workshops, in order to make a perfect imprint, reproducing the slightest details of the work.
