Update: If you read German, here is a little information on the artist. I shy away from new-age-y stuff and there seems to be a lot of it connected to pre-historic topics (on the internet, at least), so the idea of “Tyrol” originally meaning “Village of the Goddess” doesn’t hold water with me. But your milage may vary, as the kids say.
Anyone who has spent time in Austria or southern Bavaria has probably heard the salutation “Grüss Gott”, which, according to its Wikipedia entry, is often used without much thought to the religious aspect of it, much like the French “Adieu” (or the English “Goodbye”. I’m just saying this so no one gets the idea that we’re religious fundamentalists over here.)
Still, it amuses me to pass a certain sign along the Autobahn at the German-Austrian border near Kufstein. It’s been there for years, too. I was never able to get a decent photo of it but my friend Oresta recently got one and gave me permission to post it here.
