Eibenberg

Eibe is the German word for Taxus baccata (aka yew), a poisonous conifer whose wood, according to wikipedia, "possesses a remarkable elasticity, making it ideal for products that require springiness, such as bows". Eibenberg's unique summit cross, erected in 2011, pays tribute to this fact. (2014-10-08). Photo by Habakuk Tibatong.
