No riddles this week, I swear! This photo is fresh off the camera — from Dresden, Germany.

These three dapper gentlemen were spotted on the Procession of Princes wall. If you look closely, you’ll see that the image is actually painted on individual Meissen tiles. Stunningly detailed and quite amazing — but check this:

It’s just a small section of a wall that’s over 100m long! There are more than 25,000 tiles here! And it survived the horrific bombing of Dresden in WWII, which decimated much of the surrounding architecture.

Truly magnificent, no? And 100% free — all in a day of sightseeing for the no-budget traveler. 🙂
