Last week I visited Frankfurt/Germany and saw THAT (see images)… And I suddenly realised where all the money disappeared – namely into this marvelous hole on the new building in the city of Frankfurt 🙂
I have no idea what was the inspiration of the architect, but that monster seems to be the perfect symbol of what Russians call ” flew out into the hole/pipe” вылететь в трубу meaning “have lost loads of money”. That was my first thought when I saw it!
Amazing, isn`t it? And THAT – on the main shopping street of the financial center of Europe… What a great symbol in the times of crisis!
