Memorial to Victims of Animal Experimentation
A mysterious sculpture has appeared directly on the Alster in Hamburg, which is strongly reminiscent of the Bremen town musicians.
The unknown artists have placed different animals on top of each other than in the fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm: a dog, a monkey, a rabbit and a rat are in Hamburg-Uhlenhorst. The action has a sad background.Because the work of art is a protest against animal experiments, as the unknown activists say in a letter of confession on their website. On Wednesday night they put the statue up on the Alster.“Dedicated to all the victims of animal experimentation worldwide,” can be read on the base of the sculpture. Passers-by can read the exact background or the “Fairy Tale of the Hamburg Town Musicians” in small notebooks that the local animal rights activists have tied in the trees.In the “fairy tale”, the dog meets a monkey that should have ended up in a laboratory in Bremen, the rabbit, whose eyes were supposed to be tested for cosmetics, and finally the rat, which has also escaped from a laboratory. The four team up and start looking for a better life.moin.de/hamburg/hamburg-alster-tierversuche-stadtmusikanten-lpt-tierversuche-mahnmal-hund-id233587453.html
