Found outside a residence building on Aßmannshauser Straße, Berlin.

The artist was born in 1964, and the model for this sculpture was his own son. I was told that by his wife, who happened to come out of the building just as I was taking my photos. I commented that it was rare to find beautiful sculptures like this one. “Yes, it’s rare nowadays, isn’t it”, she replied with a smile.

    1. ~ Thank you for the link; though exquisite his works seem limited
      re the subject in question it’s a shame he didn’t explore it more…

  1. ~I most certainly agree with our very excellent ‘lady’ who commented
    “rare nowadays”; but I still find Germany more open in regards to such statues and kudos to them for this. He is exquisite and the placement of
    him on a pedestal of sorts keeping eye on all who access or egress this
    place yet remain safe above like a cat who commands his domain…
