Johann Meinrad Guggenbichler (Einsiedeln 1649 - 1723 Mondsee) was the son of a stone sculptor and master builder who was apprenticed in Dillingen. From 1678 he worked as a monastery sculptor for Mondsee Monastery. The successful, highly esteemed M. Guggenbichler received important commissions from the Prince-Bishop of Salzburg from 1700 onwards.

The large sculptures shown here could have been assistant figures from an altar or architectural elements of a profane, princely room decoration.
