Germany, Duisburg, Tiger & Turtle – Magic Mountain, “a stairway to heaven,…that always brings you back down to earth” “eine Treppe in den Himmel, …bringt uns immer wieder zurück auf die Erde“ Details are best to see in picture original size Details sieht man am besten in der originalen Größe des Fotos The sculpture was named “Tiger & Turtle” because of the hillocks “standstill” representing the turtle & the sculpture’s “elegant movement” of a tiger. The 220m long walkable outdoor steel sculpture with zinc-plated grate-steps is 20,6 mtr high, a width of 48,2 mtr & a depth of 34,4 mtr is a concept & design by Heike Mutter & Ulrich Genth. In November 2011the new landmark was opened to the public on the plateau of the hillock which owes its presence to the shifting of large amounts of toxic zinc-slag that have accrued during the productions of local zinc works which was closed in 2005. With an artificially heaped-up by 21mtr, the visitor can rise by more than 45mtr above the level of the landscape & enjoy an impressive view over the area with the Rhine; if the weather isI right. 880 Led-lights are integrated in the handrails & highlight the flight of stairs so the sculpture is accessible at night too. It can be worked-up all the way up to the loop, which results in that the path leads from the entrance in both directions & one must go back to the initial point again. A maximum of 195 visitors are allowed at the same time. The highest attainable point of the sculpture is 13 mtr high. The sculpture has 349 steps, excluding the loop 220 steps are walkable for visitors & the sculpture has a total weight of 90 tons. 👉 One World one Dream, 🙏...Danke, Xièxie 谢谢, Thanks, Gracias, Merci, Grazie, Obrigado, Arigatô, Dhanyavad, Chokrane to you & over 17 million visits in my photostream with countless motivating comments
