The minute I saw this statue in Cologne, Germany I knew it would be my choice for this weeks theme OMG! Our guide pointed it out to us and we all had a good laugh. I did a little more research just recently to see exactly what the statue was all about and who made it. The name of the statue is “Kallendresser”, which is an expression for someone who carries out his call to nature in the gutter. It can be found on building number 24 in Alter Market across the street from City Hall. Designed by German Ewald Mataré in 1954, the origin is unclear and there are potentialy several theories. Our guide informed us it was often done as a political statement in the square to drop your trousers and turn your back toward City Hall. She didn’t say if that still occurs today!! Whatever the true meaning, it provided me a great OMG! moment.
