The State Hall's statues

The larger-than-life marble statue in the oval-shaped centre of the State Hall represents Emperor Charles VI as “Hercules Musarum”. It dates back to 1735 and was allegedly crafted by Imperial Court sculptor Antonio Corradini (1668–1752). The other marble statues depict Austrian and Spanish Habsburgs and were created by the brothers Peter (1660 – 1714), Paul (1648 – 1708) and Dominik Strudel (1667 – 1715).
