Figure Heads


A glance at the facade of the University Church on LudwigStrasse, which looks to be opened for the first time in more than one year.  It had closed for renovation, and the re-opening was significantly delayed as they discovered asbestos , which needed to be removed.  I have never been in the church, but I’m told the frescoes inside are some of the best in the world.  The frescoes are done in large scale, one measuring 62 feet in height by 38 feet.  The dual towers of the church were meant to balance the diagonally opposite Theatinerkirche.  As for this view, it’s the angle from down Schellingstrasse.
