Hamburg /  Trauerndes Kind   Hamburg /  Trauerndes Kind


Sculpture of a child mourning over different helmets of the armies of different countries. It serves as an anti-monument to mitigate the effect of the heroic soldier standing next to it (see here).


On two stones in the pavement:

aus er trauer um die opfer
mussen wir wege finden
die zum frieden führen

friede denen in der ferne
und denen in der nähe
jesaja 57. 19
