The town musicians.

This famous four (Die Bremer Stadtmusikanten) are a well known (and much photographed) symbol for the City of Bremen.
The animals are characters from a Grimm Fairy-tale.

@Jeff & Pat: Good old Photoshop had to get rid of a few arms and heads in this shot.The statue is surrounded by tourists taking pictures of each other stood next to the Musicians so i had to be qiuck and get the shutter off as one Person went and the next stepped up..

This was one of my favorite fairy tales! The Bremen Town Musicians have been recreated in so many ways. This one is beautiful! A fabulous image!
