Hallo Achim,
Ich war in Oman in den 90er Jahren, aber ich glaube nicht dass ich diese Festung sah. Ist sie nach Norden oder Süden von Maskat? Es ist eine schöne Architektur in der Wüste.
Viele Grüße,
MT

Hello Brenda,

I am glad you and others like this picture. To me it is like a family picture, because it reminded me of a Doberman dog I played with a lot as a child. I just found out before I posted this picture that the artist's model for this work was his Doberman.
The sculpture was at the Erzsebet ter (Elizabeth square), close to the famous St Stephan basilica, but the building behind the dogs is nothing special. The square at that time was in the middle of a controversial redevelopment. They started to build a new National theater there, but after the construction started the politicians decided to build the theater somewhere else. This left a big hole at the square for a long time.
