The Guardians of Time by Manfred Kielnhofer are issued in the Documenta city Kassel. You can see the mystical sculptures on different public places in the Docuementa city for 100 days. Most of the images were made on Friedrichsplatz in the “Occupy Kassel” camp.
Manfred Kielnhofer‘s ‘The Guardians of Time’ are an illegal installation currently on show at Documenta 13 in Kassel, Germany.
