Hello folks can anyone tell me anything about the meaning of the statue on top of the Brandenburg gate. I keep see it looming over Gary Lineker's shoulder on the world cup footage and it troubles me. Cheers

Here's a description of the statue from the internet. Hope this helps

On top is the Goddess of Victory driving her four horsed chariot and she is brandishing her symbols of victory in triumph.
When the statue was first erected, she was completely naked, but this offended a lot of the Berliners whilst the rest made lewd jokes at her expense.
The sculptor, Johann Gottfried Schadow, was most upset by this and so he made her a set of clothes in sheet copper which she wears to this day!
