Stengel cubed


  1. Very witty!

    And I like the palette ...

  2. I'm not sure what it is, but it's very unusual. A square peg in a round hole?

  3. Interesting, and the building behind is pretty.

  4. I'm with the others, it looks intriguing. I've searched google for Stengel and found only German pages; from what I could gather - and that wasn't much :) - was that he probably built the beautiful building in the background (is that right? ).

  5. Different and really interesting!And of course I also loved the snow around it! :)
    Thanks so much for your always kind visits and comments in our blog!We were travelling a little bit but I think it's time to return to our routine here!:)

  6. If Stengel would have liked that? ;-)

    Ya, it's really nice as monument.

  7. very cubic in form amidst the old structure on the back.

  8. Thanks for the comments.

    Julie: Thanks. I, too, liked the way the snow made everything white and brown.

    BlossomFlowerGirl: It is explains the monument in French, German and English. Lots of monuments in Saarland have a big placard with information. But only really special monuments in Saarbrücken get a metal cube.

    joo: It is the most elegant square we have in Saarbrücken.

    Andreea: I apologise for not putting up more information. However, if you had used the search box at the top of this page, you would have got some English results. Friedrich-Joachim Stengel created all the wonderful baroque buildings in Saarbrücken.

    Cezar and Léia: Obrigado.

    Martina: You think we should have put up something more baroque?

    arabesque: You like the cube. I actually rotated the metal bit in the middle, so that you could appreciate it in all its cubic glory.
