Ghetto Birds 20
A man with crutches walks through the Liebfrauen monastery in downtown Frankfurt. The religious ornament behind him shows Jesus Christ who is surrounded by a person who is sick and another one who is crippled, by fish, a snake and pigeons. In Christianity pigeons serve as a symbol for the Holy Spirit. Still churches are often covered in heavy bird defence systems.
