The equestrian statue "Hunt for the Great Bear"

Two figures sit on horses that stick their heads into the dry grass and peer strained into the distance: black beady eyes, thickly painted-over red mouths, brightly coloured trousers, fitted waistcoats. Figures from the GDR toy range brought the class struggle of the 1960s and 1970s into living rooms and sandpits. Inspired by the best-selling novel series "Hunt for the Great Bear" by Liselotte Welskopf-Henrich (1901-1979), the domestic prairie was protected side by side with "Harka and his red brothers" from the invading bandits and their roguish social system. At the beginning of September, two life-size figures, slightly updated, will be installed by the artist duo on Karl-Marx-Allee.

Greetings: Thorsten Wöhlert (State Secretary) and Sabine Weißler (District Councillor) as well as Ute Müller-Tischler (Head of the Department of Art, Culture and History).
