The Berlin Sculpture in Berlin, Germany

The Berlin Sculpture is a broken chain located on the Tauentzienstraße in western Berlin, the capital of Germany. It was conceived by the artists Brigitte Matschinsky-Denninghoff and Martin Matschinsky in 1985 and was built in 1987. This broken chain monument symbolizes the severed connections between West and East Berlin due to the construction of the Berlin Wall. It also commemorates the unfortunate chapter in German history, as meant by Mrs. Matschinsky-Denninghoff.

You can find the Hotel Berliner Hof and the Mercedez Benz building in the background. I was finally in Berlin last February 2011. I find Germany's capital very interesting.
