Long Description:
EN
The Guardians are a pair of bronze statues created by Hannover sculptor Wilhelm Paul Eberhard Eggers (1939 - 2004) for the 10th anniversary of the Kroepcke Passage shopping mall 1998. They are located in front of the mall's Luisenstrasse entrance and with a little bit of imagination, can be identified as two heads wearing ancient, roman-like helmets. Two other sculptures (Windbaum and Sidewalk Judge) are right across the street.

Guardians ("Die Wächter") sind zwei Bronzestatuen des Hannoveraner Bildhauers Wilhelm Paul Eberhard Eggers (1939 - 2004), die dieser zum 10jährigen Jubiläum der Kröpcke Passage 1998 geschaffen hat. Sie stehen vor dem Eingang der Einkaufspassage zur Luisenstraße und lassen sich mit etwas Phantasie als zwei Köpfe mit antiken, vielleicht römischen Helmen deuten. Auf der gegenüberliegenden Straßenseite befinden sich mit Windbaum und Sidewalk Judge zwei weitere Skulpturen.
