Sculpture group marked by the conversation of two young women sitting on a bench. Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday they linger and take their time for each other, to talk about this and that. The stimulating narrator accompanied her words with gesticulating hand movements. The listener shows, despite her quiet, relaxed position with her
head turned and direct eye contact, that she listens attentively. Behind them sits a man, looking interested to them, maybe even listening to the conversation. Obviously he was reading a newspaper, that he lowers to turn himself to the conversation between the two girls. Is it a friendly or rather a suspicious smile that plays around his mouth? Jürgen Ebert plays here consciously with a certain ambiguity and leaves interpretation to the viewer. Also part of the group is - possibly perceived only at a second glance - a cat that apparently unimpressed, plays its own game, as a symbol of security (free translation of the description on the sculptor's website).
