Barlach’s Der Schwebende floats westerly in the eastern bay of the northern aisle of the Güstrower Dom. In the arcades separating the central nave from the side naves are twelve almost life-size wooden sculptures of the twelve apostles. These were carved around 1530 by Claus Berg, a master from Lübeck. Berg carved his apostles as defenders of the faith against the heresy of the Lutheran Reformation.
