Interesting art

Posted: February 2, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, Jämtland (County), My photographs

Took a couple of quick snapshots of some outdoors art yesterday (it was freezing cold so I did not make too much of an effort, but I have thought about doing this for a while), located on a street called Fagerbacken in Östersund (Jämtland County). I see it quite often in my daily life and I think it is pretty neat.

Imagine having this on display around Christmas in your front yard? You would be the king in your neighborhood.

Closeby you have this colourful monstrosity of Soviet style art near the Volvo store. I always wondered about this, like who the hell thought it was a good idea to take it in that particular direction? Still, pretty powerful look in a dystopian kind of way.

(Added info – the art is by Bengt Lindström and it is called “Tors hammare”, or “Thor´s Hammer” – I think some runes would have been a good idea…)

More to come, I just need to get a few good shots of a very interesting piece of art on the same street…
