Silhouette of the Brandenburg Gate
Brandenburg Gate, Berlin

Atop the Brandenburg Gate

Today’s Pic de Jour is a silhouette of the quadriga that tops Berlin’s emblematic Brandenburg Gate, a four-horse chariot driven by Victoria, the Roman Goddess of victory. The chariot was sculpted by Johann Gottfried Schadow, and the gate completed in 1792. At a quick glance it appears that each of the horses are galloping in a different direction.
