Painter Rene Walter works on the gilding of the statue of Victoria on top of the Victory Column in Berlin, on Wednesday. During the refurbishment works at Berlin's landmark Victory Column, about two and a half pounds of gold leaf will be put on the bronze sculpture of the goddess Victoria, which is about 25-feet-high and weighs about 35 tons. The refurbishment works at the monument are expected to be finished in spring 2011, and the reopening of the viewing platform will be during Easter 2011.
