Long Description:
Edelstahl, drehbar. Rheinufer, vor dem Langen Eugen, Bonn. Mit dieser Arbeit hatte Bohnet in den 70er Jahren einen Wettbewerb für die künstlerische Gestaltung des Bundeskanzleramts gewonnen, wo sie zunächst auch aufgestellt war. Durch ein Kanzlermachtwort von Helmut Schmidt, der stattdessen Henry Moores "Two large forms" favorisierte, wurde sie entfernt und landete auf Umwegen an ihrem heutigen Standort. [Information: Bonner Rundschau, 30.7.2007]

Stainless steel, rotatable. West bank of the river Rhine, in front of "Langer Eugen" (former house of Representatives), Bonn. With this work of art, Bohnet had won a competition for the artistic design of the Federal Chancellor in the 1970s, where it was also initially set up. Because of desire of Helmut Schmidt, who instead favored Henry Moore's "Two large forms", it was removed and landed in detours at her current location. [Information: Bonner Rundschau, 30.7.2007]
