Haberfeldtreiben Mob in front of the church, vor 1854

About the object

The straw-covered “Haberer” people are participants in a peasant tribunal known as „Haberfeldtreiben“ (Bavarian practice of mob law, reprimanding acts of unchastity). They descend as ghostly figures in a row in front of a church (probably St. Sixtus in Schliersee) down the hill. The straw figures appear again in the painting Haberfeldtreiben in a different form.
