Workers prepare to lift a statue of Germ

Workers prepare to lift a statue of German political philosopher Friedrich Engels (L) off of its base separating it from a statue of Karl Marx, in Berlin September 7, 2010. The two statues are being moved, one by one to allow for work on the new U55 underground line. They were made by east German sculptor Ludwig Engelhardt and inaugurated in 1986 by then Communist supremo Erich Honecker.
