Vienna is defined by music and the musicians that made music flourish throughout the centuries.

In fact, because of his popularity, there’s a souvenir shop in Vienna called Mostly Mozart.

   

So above are figurines of the world renowned composer in different dimensions,. He dons his usual self that we’ve seen in  his portrayals — in his red coat (click to see the actual coat) and powdered wig. notice the snowglobes behind? Well, yes, I took this shot from a souvenir shop. I’m not sure now where but it’s definitely not from the Mostly Mozart shop seen below — they don’t have window displays. Nonetheless, this shop has postcards, keychains, refrigerator magnets, music boxes, bags, t-shirts and snow globes paying homage to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
