Superboy

What’s art, what’s defacement? In this case, it was defacement because the statues were in Körnerpark, a historical monument. I was initially shocked to see the paint, but looking closer, another image was evoked: a superhero image where each cherub was transformed into a Superboy borne by an alligator. It also made me wonder what the original statues meant anyway…


Körnerpark was our local green refuge, within walking distance from our home and wonderful in every season: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. I had many experiences there, particularly with children and more children.
