Statue of Karl Marx in Germany

Added On April 15, 2018

On Friday, a statue of Karl Marx was erected in Trier, Germany, ahead of celebrations to mark the 200th anniversary of his birth.       
Karl Marx, a German philosopher and economist, was born on May 5th, 1818. He has been described as one of the most influential figures in human history.
With the upcoming 200th anniversary of his birth, the 4.4-meter high Karl Marx statue was presented by China as a gift to the great thinker's hometown. 
Designed by famous Chinese sculptor Wu Weishan, the statue arrived in Trier last month. 
According to schedule, it will be officially unveiled to the public on May 5th.
With the new attraction to the city, Trier expects more Chinese visitors to come this year.
Further work is underway to ensure integrated LED light bars and spots will illuminate the statue and pedestal.
