German Ottmar Obermaier studied sculpture at the München Academy. He worked as a designer for the porcelain factory Rosenthal between 1923 and 1935, designing idealized human forms and also animal figures based on Greek and Roman classics for production. These figures, mostly displaying physical prowess and athletic pursuits, with titles such as Discus Thrower, Victor and Striding Woman. After 1936 he worked as a designer for the Allach porcelain manufactory, which was overtaken by the SS in 1940. Parts of his design productions were then done by forced laborers from the Dachau concentration camp. Obermaier was represented in the Great German Art Exhibitions with 13 works, of which two were bought by Adolf Hitler. His porcelain sculptures idealized the Nazi ideal of Aryan bodies. He also produced several medal portraits for Nazi officers.
