Photographer's Note

The confluence of Rhine and Moselle rivers at Koblenz (lat. Confluentes!) is called "Deutsches Eck", the "German Corner". A patriotic memorial of Emperor Wilhelm I was set up here on the occasion of his 100th birthday in 1897, also to remind the foundation of the German reich in 1871.
The horsebutt was directed to the southwest, which means: towards France.
Its artistic value was limited. In the last days of WW II, the memorial was hit by a US shell on March 16, 1945, and later dismantled. Its empty pedestal was used as a monument for the German Reunification from 1953 until 1990 - after which its use had disappeared.
This copy of the statue was inaugurated on September 25, 1993.

Taken on film with Canon A1.
