Mohrenapotheke / Black Man's Pharmacy

The sculpture over the entrance of Mohrenapotheke (the black man's pharmacy) shows the pharmacy's symbol
- a black medicine man with a bowl and a snake - created by the Grazer sculptor Hans Adametz in 1933.

The name Mohrenapotheke originates to the fact that its special herbs and medicine used to be imported
from North Africa back in the old days. There are criticisms once in a while today that the word Mohre
(almost equivarent to the word "Nigger") should be changed because of its colonial, racist and negative use.

Mohrnenapotheke is celebrating its 300th anniversary in 2011.
