Tiger and Turtle

‘Tiger and Turtle,’ which looks like a roller coaster, is illuminated in Duisburg, Germany. The sculpture was designed by Heike Mutter und Ulrich Genth. Creators of the two million euro project say ‘The roller coaster stands for acceleration and high speed of a tiger but the visitor has to explore it step by step like a turtle.’ 40 visitors at a time can enjoy the views from 85 meters over the Ruhr region via 249 steps, but the loops are inaccessible.
