On the occasion of the 1,000 year anniversary the city of Fuerth made itself a gift - a large and colourful wall mosaic created by the artist Iris Rauh who domiciles in the city. The unique artwork with the title “Local traffic in the changing times – from the eagle to the underground railway” decorates a wall of the underground railway station Jakobinenstrasse.

The mural – approx. 10 metres long with a total size of approx. 31 sqm - was pieced together in handcraft work by the mosaic artist Iris Rauh and her team - out of about 800,000 mosaic pieces broken from tiles by hand.
