Mainz, Germany market square. The HeunensŠule column has stood here since the cathedral's 1,000 year anniversary in 1975. With its bronze coating, the HeunensŠule recounts many stories from the city's history.

For example, turn you attention to the head piece on all four corners: The helmet of a Roman legionnaire recounts the city's foundation in 13 BC. The bishop's mitre refers to the rich ecclesiastic tradition. The fool's cap is symbolic of a Phrygian cap worn by French revolutionaries.

The Imperial Crown of the Holy Roman Empire stands for the numerous chapters of the empire's history written by kings and emperors who found themselves time and time again in Mainz, one of the powerful centres of the Roman Empire. A few were even crowned here.
