Shape
A woman looks at you while she sits around boulders and has a sickle on her lap. It appears to be a tribute to the Berlin women who worked after the bombing in WWII between the heaps of stones to make them usable again and started the reconstruction.

Material
The artwork is carved from a simple hard stone.

Location
Around the sculpture, every year a memorial service is hold in the park. When I asked a woman who was passing by for the meaning of the statue, she gave me a touching explanation.

Impact
It appears that the inhabitants of Berlin find support in this statue of this recognizable woman. It is an image that is relevant and important.
