Fun with Flags Monuments

The top left photo was taken in Darmstadt, on the campus of the university.  The sculpture is called “Bedrohter II” (the threatened II) by Waldemar Grzimek.

The top right lion is one of several in the palace garden of Schloss Schwetzingen, in southwest Germany.

The bottom left p05hoto was taken in downtown Düsseldorf.  The sculpture is called “Auseinandersetzung” (fray, dispute) and is by Karl-Henning Seemann, who has erected the same two figures in three more towns in Germany.  Here is a photo of both figures – unfortunately it was raining which marred the photo (and it didn’t help that we were on our way back from sampling the local beer, either).


The last photo was taken in Berlin.  The two figures depicted are Karl Marx (sitting) and Friedrich Engels; the artist is Ludwig Engelhardt.

  1. This is a wonderful idea, and fun too. Interaction between flash and blood humans and sculptures 🙂 Who is the sculpture in the image with No 17 in the background. It’s a hilarious capture!


  2. Thanks for your comments, Paula. I have added more information on the bottom of the post now. I didn’t have time yesterday, and I wasn’t too sure if anybody would be interested. The photo was taken on a night stroll through town with friends, and the photo little more than a happy click on the spur of the moment. If I had been on my own I might have framed it better etc. but I would have lacked the human counterpart. This is often the case: either – or.
