Statues in the Park

For todays’ Wordless Wednesday I chose some statues from the park Sanssouci in Potsdam. The French term means carefree. The Rococo Palace served as a summer residence for Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, and I’m pretty sure the palace has seen some wild parties over the years …

  1. The one with the hammock is art, I would say. Unless the hammock is meant to be a fishing net, if that is really a merkid they have caught along with the fish.
    The half-lady half-lion with the two children is a category of her own. (One of the children seems to be suffocating him/herself with a plastic bag, except that plastic bags hadn’t yet been invented in the 18th century.)

    1. Damn, the merkid is really that, I just wasn’t tall enough to capture it probably… not much Art left I’m afraid 😳
      How did they live without plastic bags bag than? 🤔

  2. I call it Art, it takes real talent and work to make a statue. It lasts and often I understand there is symbology in the statues such as with horses hooves, the number of them on the ground is an indicator of the fate of the rider.

    1. The palace was erected around 1947 and was French inspired. It served the kings until 1918 so different styles must’ve mixed. They are pretty … Erm … memorable 🤭
