My parents gave us a name for ourselves and a name from the arts. My name is Bobby Lilith and they named me after Lilith Am Roten Meer by Anselm Kiefer. I've seen it before in real life, but was too young to understand it. In the last years I've taken a lot of pride in my name, so I guess you can imagine my delight when I turned the corner in Hamburger Bahnhof, and suddenly saw it there. I'd seen it on pictures, but it's always so much more impressive in real life, like all Kiefer's work.
I am very proud to have this piece with me forever, because it's incredibly beautiful.


  1. Wow-that piece is amazing, going to have to look the artist up :D

  2. that is beautiful.
    i wish my name also had a special reason behind it...

  3. i just realized it's been a while since the last time i've been there. i should go next week.

  4. what a beautiful story. and what an awesome unique gift from your parents - giving u these 2 names.
