Goldelse

in response to Our World Tuesday

Berlin
The Victory Column

"Golden Lizzie," as it is known in Berlin slang, was build in commemoration of Prussia’s victory in the German-Danish war in 1864. In the course of a few years, two additional victorious wars were added: the German war of 1866 against Austria and the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1.

The 8,3 metre high bronze sculpture weighing 35 tonnes, created by Friedrich Drake, represents victory goddess Victoria wearing a helmet and holding a laurel wreath in one hand and, in the other, a staff bearing an iron cross.

It appears in video spot Stay (Faraway, So Close!) of the rock band U2. Several scenes were shot from the air around the Victory Column (Siegessäule) and Bono is standing on the statue. Later we see all of the band on the statue.
