This massive granite basin sits in front of the Altes Museum on Museumsinsel in Berlin. It was quarried from a nearby forest and hauled to the Lustgarten (the park in front of the Dom, Berlin's central cathedral), in 1826. Cut from a single stone, it was a wonder of engineering in its time. The surface was polished to mirror-like perfection.



Today the Granitschale is covered in pockmarks from WW2. It is no longer one single piece (a seam where it was glued back together is clearly visible), and it has lost its sheen. But don't be forlorn! For our parks, I have decided to restore it to a slightly better state. <3
