The artwork

Die Tribute to the country of Tyrol takes you into an alpine world of fables, in which on the one hand you meet important historical figures such as Emperor Max, Andreas Hofer and Maria Theresia and on the other hand you cannot ignore the typical architectural and cultural details of the country. The traditionally shaped motifs combine pop art and abstraction: from the Golden Roof to the colorful chain of houses on the banks of the Inn in Mariahilf, the Nordkette and the Hungerburgbahn to Amras Castle and the giant at the entrance to the Swarovski Crystal Worlds.

The project was under the Theme “Hypo Elysium” implemented. “Hypo” stands for the ancient Greek prefix “hypo” in the sense of “under” and thus represents a connection to the underground garage. “Elysium” describes the paradise world – a place of mythical, epic joy – a stimulus for imagination and creativity; a place of happiness.
