Homeless Cats Monument, Germany

From series “The Most Unusual Statues and Monuments”
Year: 1981.

In Germany, in the city of Braunschweig, there is the monument dedicated to the men without cats. The monument, which was erected in 1981, is impressively large and looks like a high stele, on which the bronze cats are fixed in different poses. All people who see the monument for the first time notice its incredible realism. The cat bellows opened more than 30 years ago became one of the main attractions of Braunschweig.

It calls people to behave more attentively to the ruthless animals. For several years, the hereditary cats are a difficult problem for many German cities. The monument in Braunschweig is remarkable not only for its realism and its symbolic significance. Cat bellows are among the monuments with the largest number of animals represented. Only the most attentive people can correctly count the number of bronze cats that have settled on the stele. Next - Great Depression Monument
