Two boys have fun sparring on the snow covered grass along Munich’s Isar River. Contrast that image with the delicate, half naked image of a young woman overlooking the scene. Her gesture is vulnerable, yet powerful at the same time. This unmarked statue stands south of Munich in one of its many open parklands. The bike paths draw south from here past the zoo along the Isar, and before you know it you are outside the city and well into farmland or even forest. That’s one more thing that amazes about Munich, how quickly you get beyond the urban boundary and are in a completely different world.
