Retirement home, Kulmbach (GER)

Since 2017 three printed glass fins decorate the entrance area of the Heiner-Stenglein retirement and nursing home in Kulmbach. The so called „Wegzeichen“ from the Bavarian artist symbolize the circle of human life from its birth to the death and beyond. Different symbols allegorizing determination, courage, justice as well as decisionmaking and initiative. Furthermore the tree of life constitutes a connection between heaven and earth. The illustrations were applied by digital printing to three glass panes of the type TG-PROTECT® SGP made of TG-ESG®.
