Annotation

The statue was originally placed on Odeonsplaced and in 1862 relocated to the Promenadeplatz. In the Second World War completely destroyed en re-cast in 1958.

The monument serves as a memorial for Michael Jackson. "It is situated near the hotel "Bayerischer Hof", where Michael stayed some nights, at the Orlando Di Lasso monument. The memorial fairies care for this special place every day and many people show their respect and light a candle. The memorial is tolerated by the city and mayor Christian Ude and we are very very grateful for that. Thank you! However the memorial is not official and we are aware of the fact that this current situation might not last forever" The Michael Jackson Tribute Portrait.
