Berlin Victory Column and my pencil skirt

SONY DSC

Time for very impressive place in Berlin namely The Victory Column or Siegessäule. The Vitory Column is located in scenic place Großer Tiergarten Park, designed by Heinrich Strach (german architect wich designed construction of the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin or Flatow Tower in Babelsberg Park) for commemorate the Prussian victory in the Danish-Prussian War, exposed on 2 September 1873. The Victory Column also commemorate Prussia had defeated Austria in Austro-Prussian War (1866) and France in 1870-71 Franco-Prussian War. Later victories inspired the addidtion impressive bronze sculpture with effigy of Victoria. (8,3 metres high and 35 tonnes weight) Sculpture designed by Friedrich Drake. Total hight is 67 m. Project on a vase of polished red granite. We can see the columns which sits on a hall of pillars. Very interesting is a project of glass mosaics, designed by Anton von Werner. Inside of this project we can find stair leading up to the observation platform. Four bronze reliefs decorated the  foundation. Reliefs showing the three wars and the victorious marching to Berlin. Artists: Alexander Calandrelli, Albert Wolf, Karl Keil, Moritz Schulz. It’s worth mentioning about details like golden cannon barrels and golden garlands around the column.

With reference to my fashion inspiration I chose pencil skirt 🙂 I love pencil skirts and in my opinion it’s very good way for showing feminine figure, womens shapes. Also I’m a big fan of this pattern-similar to tartan. Interesting is a detail in the form of ,,bonding” two bonds on the hips. Next I chose sweater with  my lovely wide sleeves in beige tones from NOA NOA shop. As for accessories, I’ve got massive earring with circles in different sizes. Burgundy colour with tinged with gold.

Bode Museum Part I

 

sculpture

Time for my squareshoots from Bode Museum. The museum was designed by Erns von Ihne and completed in 1904. is one of the group of museums on the Museum Island in Berlin. Wilhelm von Bode was the first curator in this museum and for this reason building was renamed in his honour in 1956. Neo-baroque architecture and place on the Spree river is very impressive. Erns von Ihne was a German architect which, his best works are: Prussian Royal Library in Berlin, Kawalera palace in Poland, Bode Museum or Neuer Marstall in Berlin. Wilhelm von Bode who believed in mixing art collections, appointed diersified collection with sculptures from Byzantium and Ravenna, sculptures of the Middle Ages, the Italian Gothic, and the early Renaissance. Also works represented by Tilman Riemenschneider, the south German Renaissance, and Prussian Baroque. We can be integrate with into the collection like a concept William von Bode in which sculptures, crafts, paintings are viewed together as in upper in upper middle-class private collections. Below are my a few squareshoots from museum interior.

POSTCARD FROM 1913

 

I want to stell You about very magical place in the Volkspark Friedrichshain in Berlin. The Märchenbrunnen – it’s just fountain of fairy tales. Unfortunately off spring-summer season we can’t see all beautiful sculptures in the Park but summer times will be the most convenient term for visit this place. The fountain of fairy tales designed by german architect Ludwig Hoffmann. He was very popular architect in Germany, also he designed important buildings in Berlin like: Märkisches Museum, with Alfred Messel the built version of the Pergamon Museum, Altes Stadthaus and much more. More over he was an author of many bridges, fountains or private villas. The main part of this complex are one large and nine small fountains. If You will here in sunny season all sculptures will expose for visitors. We can see there fairy tale characters like frogs, turles, Puss in boots, Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty and much more which are made of sandstone and limestone. All sculptures was created by Georg Vrba. Very impressive are sculptures above the arcade, there is a complete gallery with animal’s sculptures from folk history and literary tales. One of the interesting fact is a situation when sculptures dissappeared after Word War II. Foud them in 1950 behind a high wall of one of the gardens (Friedrichshain) Unlickily sculptures were in a damaged condition. Photo below.

When it comes about fashion I chose polka dots! In my opinion polka dots are so timeless in fashion for every woman. Also I love puffed sleeves and combinations with puffed sleeves and polka dots is bull’s-eye! It’s a Tie-front blouse and we can we can tie a bow or knot. Further I have my old friend- classic black coat. My frosting on the cake is a small bag with a embroidered red flowers. Her shape is really interesting.
