"and so the two walked..."



When I spent the afternoon at the Karlsruhe Palace last week, I went looking for a pretty sclupture hidden in the trees that I found the first time I went to the palace gardens. I know nothing about the sculpture other than it has a date of 1866 on it and there is a beautiful inscription on the pillar between the couple that reads, "Also gingen die zwei entgegen der sinkenden Sonne" - "And so the two walked against the setting sun." I climbed up the stones it stands on and braved the broken beer bottles, cigarette butts and graffiti and got some detail photos of the pair.

And so the two walked...

Wow...that has some impressive detail...especially in the folds of the clothing.

I love those last two photos - great shots! I'd love to know the history behind that piece. How lucky that you stumbled upon it!
