An updated post about the Landesmuseum Württemberg/ Württemberg State Museum. It’s located inside Stuttgart’s “Altes Schloss” and was built in the 10th century and is the oldest surviving building in Stuttgart. Many German friends I know also haven’t been to the museum, although we walk pass it almost every time we meet. Habits.
스튜트가르트에서 가장 오래된 건물인 구궁전안에 자리잡고 있는 주립박물관. 이번에 스튜트카드로 관광객 행세하면서 들어갔는데 너무 좋아서 놀람.
아, 세상에서 제일 아름답게 정리해놓은 박물관으로 내맘대로 지정.
이거 통째로 집에다가 갔다놓고 싶었음.
Another interesting exhibition is the Eugen Gutmann Collection of Clocks. It’s a bit hidden underground and so it makes it feel you’re walking into a dungeon. Mr. Gutmann was a German banker and was the man who introduced branch banks in Germany. He ran the Dresdner Bank in Berlin for over 40 years and during that time was able to accumulate many artworks, including clocks. This is the place to be if you like gold, shiny things and clocks.
전세계의 미술품을 사들이는 취미였던 독일의 은행가 유겐 굿만의 시계 컬렉션도 이 박물관에서 찾을 수 있다. 감옥같은 느낌의 지하로 내려가면 볼 수 있는데 보통 번쩍이는 애들이 아니다. 앞, 뒤, 옆 너무 번쩍여서 눈이 부실 정도.
I think I would have been terrified to wake up in the morning and found the faces looking down on me. Considering the shape of the mouths on the top two, I believe they would have made a sound. Extra terrifying.
A zirkel means a compass, a small instrument you use when you are drawing circles or arcs. There were a lot of them. I decided it was interesting because it fit quite well with the overall image of Germans and Germany (although sometimes, some people can be as clumsy as me): precision. Me and G were particularly fascinated by little instruments. These small little gadgets that made a world of a difference in so many aspects; from mathematics, architecture, engineering to even art.
정확성을 강조하는 나라답게 이와 관련된 오래된 도구들이 많았다. 예를 들어 원을 그리는 컴퍼스, 자, 계산기 등. 이때부터 이런걸 박스안에다가 넣어다닐 정도로 강조했다니.
