Statue in the Böblingen Marktplatz

This was shot a few hours ago when there was still light. I was on the other side of the marktplatz and got this shot to work, somehow.

Do you keep an angel on your shoulder? Or am I missing entirely what this statue is supposed to represent. The man has no weapon, but he has his elbow out and his mouth is open. There are so many symbols at work here, I don't know if I could pick all of them up.
