On our way to South Africa, we had a layover in Frankfurt, Germany. We took this opportunity to leave the airport and check out the town. As we walked along we found ourselves in the middle of a showdwon between a bull and a bear (or a bulle and bär in German).
In front of the Frankfurt stock exchange stand two sculptures by Reinhard Dachlauer. They have been there since 1987. The bronze to make the sculptures was donated by the stock exchange on its 400th anniversary.
The bull represents a rising stock market where investors are optimistic.
The bear represents a recession where investors are wary.
Both sculptures had a cartoonish quality and lots of personality. We found them very endearing regardless of which way the stock market is headed
