Chinese Shadow no.1

There is something creepy about this Quadriga in Banderburger Tor in Berlin. It is not that different from similar statuary in the rest of Europe including Paris’ triumphal charriot of the Arc Du Carrousel. Yet, this one was a symbol of Nazism for more than a decade. From 1962 till 1989 it remained isolated in the no man’s land between East and West Germany. Nowadays it’s a regular tourist attraction.
