sculpture, square

Light and shade, old and new

A sculpture by Gernot Waldner looking onto the Schlossplatz, the square of the old duke's palace.

What is the sculpture trying to tell us? The official Zweibrücker web site has the answer to that question. In fact, it has two answers. On the German page, we are told the sculpture symbolises the destruction and rebuilding of the town. In the English translation of the same page, we are told the sculpture "represents an open door and invites the viewers to look back into the ducal times".


  1. I'm not quite sure why, but I really like this.

  2. This is great. The balance of light behind the structure is what really makes it.

  3. I like it too. What is the purpose of this sculpture? I see some text next to it...

  4. es como una puerta de entrada y salida de otra dimension.

    es fenomenal!!
    me gusto mucho.

    Don and Krise: Well, the square as a whole is interesting, especially in the sun.

    Joan Elizabeth: Thanks.

    Buenos Aires Photoblog: I thought the purpose might be to look good. I forgot to read the text. It will remain a mystery.

    Sonia: Quizás otro puerta que llega a edificios paralelos en el DF?

    joo: Thanks.

  7. Buenos Aires Photoblog: I have added more information to the entry that might partially satisfy your curiosity.
