Transcript

On the grounds of Berlin, stands tall a monument of historical significance for the German nation. This monument was erected to memorialize the triumph of victorious Prussia over Denmark in 1864. The original design did not have the sculpture of Victoria, made of bronze, on top of the column. It was added in the initial plans and structure as a symbol of honor for Prussia's victories over the Austrian Empire and France. Familiarly called as ''Golden Else'', Friedrich Drake laid down the artwork for this statue of the Victory Goddess. The gorgeous mosaic reliefs present in the monument showcase depictions from the 3 wars fought on the German soil.
