The Chicken vs. the Egg

Packing things up in knitware seems all the latest trend (Didn’t they wrap a tank somewhere?), so this piqued my curiosity last Thursday on my way from work (Good Friday and Easter Monday are official holidays around here) and today I was able to snap some photos from inside the tram.

To provide a bit of backstory: Currently here in Leipzig there is a heated debate about a new memorial in honor of reunification. Since the winner of a contest held last year is a rather unimaginative proposal to turn yet another acre of city space into a collection of colored squares, apparently some of the protesters decided to cover up the current memorial, which incidentally happens to be a hollow brass/ bronze egg as if to symbolize the fragility of democracy. Kinda funny and most fitting for Easter…
