Gallileo Building and Caryatids Beneath Pediment in Frankfurt, Germany

On the left is the Gallileo building which was built in 2003 in the Station District of Frankfurt as the corporate headquarters for Dresdner Bank which was subsequently acquired by Commerzbank. In sharp contrast is another Commerzbank facility that was built almost 100 years earlier. It has exquisite caryatids which are female sculptures designed to provide architectural support of this pediment.
