Bernhard Hoetger, Tree of Life

Made for the facade of Haus Atlantis in Bremen, Germany, 1931. It depicts the "Savior of Atlantis," combining attributes of Jesus and Odin. Destroyed by bombing in 1944. Most of the rest of the house survived and after the war the facade was rebuilt to look as un-Nazi as they could imagine.
