While I was shooting photos of the new mosaics a guy from Freiburg's Garten- and Tiefbauamt (Garden and Engineering Office) approached and proudly started explaining to some tourists how he and his team of trainees had made the new mosaics. It had taken them about 1000 hours of work: The white color is marble, blue is some stone from Brazil, and green is an artificial stone.
