Dieter Desczyk in Berlin has published a book on "Bridges and Saints". With its drawings it is a small rarity, there is nothing comparable. "Message": The bridge has something transcendent (crossing over) in the truest sense of the word, but also in the symbolic: over dangers from one world to another, and in this the saints are accompanying intercessors and true pontifices.
