like the statue and the benches...hope there were some benches on your side for those who might want to contemplate the statue!

I wonder if they just moved him to that park where I saw him lately. This looks like exactly the same statue... maybe I'll have to do some investigating. :)

Halcyon - Follow the link (in German) it is all explained there. This is a copy of the monument placed, after a long time, in the intended originary location.
