Den Erdgeist von André Heller

Erwin Woenckhaus on June 29, 2007

Hi Wim... what is this, a tree or a sculpture?

Wim de Vries on June 30, 2007

Hi Erwin, this is the Earth Spirit, part of the world's largest ceramic puzzle .

This earth spirit - a 14 metres high statue made of ivy plants - was also created by André Heller.

This synthesis of the arts can be visited in the park of the "Old Abbey" in Mettlach.

Greetings from Bonn, Germany

Thank U Wim, you're very kind! Greetings.
