The Little People of Munich

A statue of Shakespeare's Juliet...a gift from Verona in 1974.  You are to place flowers in her arms (Munich's tradition) or touch her breast (Verona's tradition) for a chance at undying love. 

Cabaret artiste Ida Schumacher (1894–1956) was the best Ratschkathl . She created the tram-track-crack-cleaning-lady character.  I just thought it was finally a tribute to those who most deserve it!!
