The Dike Master of Eidelstedt Picture

The Dike Master of Eidelstedt on his Pale Horse".... or something like that. Translation of "Der Schimmelreiter vom Eidelstedter Deich" isn't quite easy.

Basically, he is a heroic dike master who sacrifices himself (and the poor horse as well) to the sea in a terrible storm to save his land and his people. And returns on some nights, riding the dike as a ghost and checking if everything is still well.
