It has taken eight weeks of intensive assembly work but the newest feature of the German landscape has been unveiled. The city of Duisberg is now home to Crouching Tiger and Turtle, which could easily be described as a roller coaster without a roller coaster!
It stands about eleven meters in height and is part of the city’s Capital of Culture project. Crouching Tiger and Turtle, Magic Mountain (to give it its full name) is a work by sculptors Ulrich Genth and Heike Mutter.
The giant sculpture, situated in the Heinrich Hildebrand-heights is made from steel and zinc which establishes a link between itself and the park in which it is situated which once produced zinc before it was turned in to a recreational space.
