Your Place, or Mine?


One of the mosaics at the base of the Peace arch in the Bogenhausen neighborhood of Munich.  The Mosaics are an allegorical representation of peace and war, and the victory and blessings of civilization.  Carl von Effner, forever changed the face of this part of Munich, when in 1857 he constructed the footbath and green area on the right hand side of the Isar.  The result is a 30-hectare Maximilian Park, and the 23 meter column that supports the peace arch.

Because she raised her hand up!?!?
