The Re­cast­ing Of His­tor­i­cal Works

Where Berlin - - SIGHTSEEING -

Ever dreamed of own­ing the 25,000-year- old Venus of Wil­len­dorf in your liv­ing room? Or the 42m(138ft.)-tall Col­umn of Mar­cus Aure­lius in your gar­den? Although th­ese mas­ter­pieces aren't for sale, you can order life-sized repli­cas of most works found in state mu­se­ums from around the world. At Gips­formerei, one of the old­est in­sti­tu­tions of the city mu­se­ums, the 7000-strong col­lec­tion of molds is the largest in the world, and the show­room hosts a ro­tat­ing se­lec­tion of high-qual­ity plas­ter sculp­tures to view and pur­chase.
