Pudelskern design

Pudelskern's name refers to a quote from Goethe‘s drama "Faust": the first part of the tragedy. Though the main character Heinrich Faust successfully gained knowledge on his quest for the essence of life, he is still unsatisfied:
"Here now I stand, poor fool, and see
I‘m just as wise as formerly."
When he meets the devil he makes a deal trading his soul for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures. The devil approaches Faust in disguise of a poodle, revealing his true character only later.
Goethe‘s quote "Das ist also des Pudels Kern" entered German language meaning to find the core of a thing - the gist of the matter.
