Dummy heads and detective poster at an antiques shop

Pic 1: An antiques shop on Oranienstraße, with dismembered dummy heads and a poster for a German detective movie, Emile die Detektive. The tones could be more contrasty (a technical term, I think) but the random collection of objects is a good reference to Berlin as a cut-up city.

More pictures coming soon.
