這座建築物據介紹，是以Neo-Renaissance 的風格建築，於 20 世紀初重新建造。建築宏偉的風格，大量的浮雕、壁柱 (pilaster) 與金碧輝煌的裝飾，固然教人目不暇給。鑲金的大理石與瑪瑙祭壇由 Friedch August Stüler 設計， 在其背則是由 Anton von Werner 設計的彩繪玻璃，半後的使徒牆（Apostle Wall) 則是由 Karl Friedrich Schinkel 設計。三者加起來自然是教堂的焦點。而其圓頂的浮雕與彩繪玻璃同樣壯觀。 繼續閱讀 柏林小記之一 : 柏林大教堂
As opposed to wildlife, we do have a safari in the city. The picture above shows a common citylife species, called the Mannequin Luxuria, also know as Mannequin.
It is what I call, the citylife. It preys on labour of people, it’s fed on greed and desire. Their glamourous outlook is their means to prey on vulnerable people. Citylives are a common species among big cities. In Hong Kong, most can be found it Tsim Sha Tsui, Central and Causeway Bay.
The photo below shows a unknowing human falling prey to Mannequin luxuria outside Tsim Sha Tsui ( or Central. I forgot)
The population of Mannequin Luxuria has been growing exponentially around the world in the past 30 years. Alongside with the rise of China together with a new, huge and rapidly growing population of nouveau riche there. These nouveau riche are the best prey for Mannequin Luxuria.
Mannequin Luxuria have a ectosymbiotic relationship with another bigger organism, namely the International Mercators (also known as, International Brands).
It is a not-so-complicated ecosystem. The International Brands provide resources and nutrient for Mannequin. The Mannequin attracts the preys, and the preys then go into the colony of International Brands and become lost, they give their labour/greed/desire in the form of money in order to get a way out of the colony.
