Here is the 10 (pf) value (Mi #2929) from the DDR's March 5, 1985 two-stamp set commemorating the Leipzig Spring Fair. Stamp depicts the statue of J.S. Bach outside of St. Thomas Church in Leipzig, but with a solid green background replacing the church/city scene. This new Bach monument was completed/placed in 1906.

From de.zxc.wiki, "On a 3.20 meter high limestone plinth is a 2.45 high bronze statue designed by the Leipzig sculptor Carl Seffner (1861-1932) and cast by the company Noack & Brueckner."

The Federal Republic of Germany's rendition of this Bach statue (as a definitive stamp) can be seen on page 21 of this thread.
