Firstly, a nice representation of the Belle Epoque period art, a rarity in Kaliningrad. Secondly, it should be noted that the animals represented in the sculpture are wild oxen (aurochs?European bisons?), not merely garden variety bulls. Thirdly, the sculpture acquires some color during Easter.

On one hand, it's nothing special - you see 2 fighting bulls. But on the other hand, this work represents the power and strength of the animal. I wonder if there is another hidden meaning to this...

Really ordinary statue (this autumn bulls' balls are violet). I've noted them and thought -- if they're in top visited of the city, maybe there's something interesting. Absolutely not. I think all the high rating is for those balls. But they're absolutely not always interesting. Also a cam in front of the statue makes it hardly reachable for the washers... More

Two fighting bulls in front of the University of Law in Kaliningrad. Their balls are the most popular part of the statue, so.. they are shinny and people rub them for good luck.

Apparently the two bisons (zubr) symbolise a prosecutor and an advocate as they're in front of the Law Faculty. Before, the students used to swing on their tails, nowadays they make their own special Easter Eggs from their... erm testicles, they paint them red or green. An interesting statue of its own, quite easy to find.
