    Anyone who has ever been to the Bardo, the huge museum just outside Tunis, will never forget them: Roman mosaics by the dozen and even more. Stone splendor and glory, gods and garlands, game and Medusa heads on all four, six or eight corners, the overwhelmed eye sees carpets made of thousands of shiny stones across many square meters, created in a time when nomads elsewhere, at best, for protection and knotted benefits from sheep and goat hair.

    Even today, a carpet makes life more beautiful, often even elegant. In a sense, one is elevated. And outside the door one rolls out one (in red) for high-ranking state guests, for film stars too, so that they stand out from the common people.

    Now a “Red Stone Oriental Carpet” is being rolled out in the Port of Hamburg, a renewal of the first one. Like its predecessor from 2005, which was supposed to invite the very late opening of the Elbphilharmonie, this one also has a special reason. Also created by Frank Raendchen, it refers to another event: the Hamburg Körber Foundation is turning 60. Not enough: it created a kind of triad. On the way to the Elbphilharmonie, this carpet also leads to the headquarters of this important cultural institution and at the same time past the large carpet warehouses.

    In the first week around 67 square meters and almost two cubic meters were removed from the old stone carpet with a sharp chisel.
    The weekly goal seemed a bit unrealistic with the many machine failures and the heavy tools, but it was mastered well despite the hardworking helpers.

    The carpet looks very real, but it's made of marble. Frank Raendchen, together with voluntary helpers, laid and sealed more than 1.5 tons of marble granulate in small samples.
