bremen town musicians in riga

Posted on

In the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tale: “Town Musicians of Bremen“, the 4 animals (donkey, dog, cat and rooster) are standing on each other’s backs peering into a house of robbers feasting.

The statue, gifted to Riga by their sister city Bremen, has a political satirical connotation.

Wise Monkey Trivia: The 4 animals are standing on each other’s back but are looking through the “Iron Curtain”.
