Danish photographer Per Johansen withdrew a series of photographs called Mæt , consisting of photographs of bottles filled with different food. This series is designed to draw attention to the problem of human greed and limitless consumerism.
The Moselkern Stele is one of the most puzzling (and fascinating) objects in the Rheinischen Landesmuseum's collection. It was found in 1915 in a cemetery near Moselkern (Kreis Cochem-Zell). The stone is believed to have been made in a Rhenish workshop in the 7th century AD. That it is a Christian monument is certain. In the upper section a Crucifix is carved out; above it appears a large human face and arms, which wrap around the cross and seem to hold the hands of the crucified Christ.
