  poor polarbear...
by globetrott

It looks strange and also a bit sad to see the fur of a polarbear mis-used as a carpet inside the castle of Cochem. I saw 2 such carpets and of course in the 19th century people thought differentely about the wildlife and such carpets used to be a symbol of prosperity and a certain proof of travels that the owner of the castle had made.
This polarbear looks really sad and lost all of his teeth already...
