a photo a day from germany's capital city
Kind of a creepy quality to this mosaic, I think, like they were trying a little too hard to mimic Greek hagiography.
The whole thing is creepy. Especially when you think about how much the Russian soldiers terrorized the people (mostly women, children and the elderly) who were left in Berlin. There was a lot of rape and abuse. Hard times...
Mosaics fascinate me Hal, so much work!
When will we build memorials of peace?
So detailed for a mosaic, Hal!
Very much what you would expect out of Soviet style art.
A lot of details in this mosaic! Greetings from France!
Darn! I keep finding things I missed on our visit. This is lovely.
I wouldn't call this a "must see" if you only have limited time in Berlin. I don't think my husband has ever been out to see it!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
