Comment on 16.5.1833

C.F. Hansen had suggested that the relief Caritas, cf. A598, be mounted on a marble pedestal and made into a poor-box:

“as its first purpose was charity, it seems to me that, because of its modest size, it might be mounted on a marble pedestal that could be made into a poor-box, either for the Christiansborg Palace Chapel or the Church of Our Lady.”
