Es ist nicht alles Gold, was glänzt
No, not everything that glitters is gold. That even applies to shiny yellow garden gnomes which may have been subjected to embarrassingly cheap production methods. While this specimen seems to be saying, "Screw clichés," traditional proverbs, on the other hand, hold timeless wisdom. And no matter how wise this particular gnome (sculpture by Ottmar Hörl) happens to be, he's still not made of gold.
