On the Steiner Sesquicentennial Express webpage is the story of the 220 pound, 18" sided wax block cube riding to its destiny in Croatia. Here's the English translation.
The Wax Block
A Beeswax "Building Block" for the 150th Birthday of Rudolf Steiner
For Rudolf Steiner's 150th Birthday (February 27, 2011), the Beeswax Block will be on board the "Rudolf Steiner Express" travelling from Cologne to Kraljevec, the birthplace of this remarkable thinker and spiritual pioneer and the place where a cultural center is now being built to honor his life's work.
Sandra Percac is now deeply involved in all aspects of making this project succeed. On this "day of jubilee," 199 passengers are travelling on the train. The interrelated celebrations along the railway line and in the actual birthplace of Steiner will certainly boost the success of the project. This idea is enriched by transforming the wax cube into a Beeswax Building Block. May this Beeswax Building Block become a foundation stone of the heart for the new anthroposophical cultural impulse in Croatia.
Happy Birthday, Rudi!
May there be as much buzz on your birthday today as there was in building this beeswax block!
