a photo a day from germany's capital city
Yes, artistic and historic value! There is nothing wrong with pride in our nations, even as we build towards a world where all are happy regardless of their culture or history. God Bless Germany
I wonder if these details for created in a mold. Even so,what an amazing amount of time must have gone into creating it.
Interesting and beautiful...would like it better if they weren't on weapons, but...one can't have everything! :)
A lot of detail work goes into these.
I don't think I have ever seen such ornate cannons before! Love all the details.
Any old canons I've seen before have been plain and black. It's interesting to see artistry like this in a weapon.
German eagles and American eagles must be from from different species. Someone somewhere must have analyzed the difference.
Really nice! I like the raised letters and numbers - so beautiful!
The desire to decorate everything is now gone. Kind of pity.
The last place I would expect to find impressive artwork like this.
I agree that the artwork and eagles are quite beautiful.
Even if (as you point out) the objects weren't used for purposes I support, I definitely recognize the fine art and craftsmanship that went into making them.
Truly something you don't see nowadays anymore.The details are wonderful.
I am always amazed at the details that went into the making of objects years ago. That attention to details is lacking today. Even a canon, an instrument of war had beautiful details. Thanks for joining Tuesday's Treasures and I hope that you return soon.
Decoration was so important in times past!
You definitely have to admire the artistic merit of these pieces! They are awesome!
You are right about the artistic merit of the canons!
Nowadays they aren't decorated...
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
