Bach’s skull was found in 1894 during the building of St. John, Leipzig [de], [2] in 1895, Seffner and Wilhelm His were commissioned to produce an anatomical reconstruction.

[4]CommissionSeffner went on to produce sculptures of Karl Heine (1896/1897), the Mayor Carl Wilhelm Otto Koch [de] (1898), young Johann Wolfgang von Goethe as a student in Leipzig (1902), [5] and Edvard Grieg (1904). [6] Additional works include the busts of Albert of Saxony, Alois Senefelder, and Friedrich Koenig.

There is a music scroll in the statue’s right hand and the left hand is raised from an organ manual. The statue debuted on 17 May 1908, coinciding with Leipzig’s first Bach festival.
