    Four shades of red: To honor Karl Marx' 195th birthday, artist Ottmar Hörl set 500 of these sculptures up throughout the philosopher's hometown of Trier, a city in western Germany near the border with Luxembourg. The different shades are reportedly meant to suggest that Marxism can be interpreted in more than one way.

    Thoughts?

    I'll refrain from voicing my own for now.
