Long Description:
Source: (visit link) :

"Ein Beispiel für die beliebige Platzierung von Skulpturen findet sich unweit des Hühnerdiebs in der Kockerellstraße. Seit 1975 ist dort ein beliebtes Kinderspiel aufgestellt, das einen „Reiterringkampf“ symbolisiert. Diese Bronzefigur könnte genauso in Hannover, Regensburg, Dresden oder einer anderen deutschen (oder europäischen) Stadt beheimatet sein. Es wurde an der Aachener Wegkreuzung platziert, an der sich einst beide Verbindungswege römischer Garnisonen in Aachen kreuzten."

EN (Translation):
"An example of the arbitrary placement of sculptures can be found not far from the chicken thief in Kockerellstraße. A popular children's game has been set up there since 1975, symbolizing a "rider ring fight". This bronze figure could also be located in Hanover, Regensburg, Dresden or another German (or European) city. It was placed at the Aachen crossroads where both Roman garrisons once crossed in Aachen."
