Description

Three fish, made from crosshacks and plowshares, hanging under the bridge to the protestant church of Monschau. Before they were hung there, they had travelled from the Landesgartenschau in Trier to exhibitions in Luxembourg, Belgium and Holland.

Originally there were a six more, the three others were in the riverbed near the Marketsquare, but they disappeared in 2013 when the water level was very high.
