One thing for certain: Heidelberg is full of storks. They have selected the city to be their home. If you look closely, you will find nests everywhere and with a bit of luck and at the right time of the year—in March and April—you will find the baby storks, too. Storks are symbolic of fertility and, as illustrated elsewhere in "Heidelberg wimmelt," deliver babies to their happy expectant parents.
When I drew this pair, I wanted to show these storks looking for potential parents. On the real Neckar meadow there are many people who could become great parents, just like here.
Which child needs a new sibling? Which couple should be blessed next with a new bundle of joy or Kinderglück, as the Germans call it? (And with this thought, I send my warmest regards to the little "Murmel" or baby-belly, whom I wrote a special dedication to in "Heidelberg wimmelt" this summer at my book signing in Märchenparadies. I hope you had a smooth arrival into this world and wish you, little Earthling, and your family much love and joy).
In "Heidelberg wimmelt" you can find other storks, too. If you want to count exactly how many are there, then you need to have the popular hidden object book about Heidelberg. "Heidelberg wimmelt" can be purchased at your favorite bookseller, directly from the publisher, Silberburg-Verlag, or at the online bookseller of your choice.
