Lovely art with local twist

Posted: June 9, 2019 in Cool stuff, General, Jämtland (County), My photographs, The Great Lake Monster

Stumbled across this lovely art yesterday at a local shop in Östersund (Jämtland County) called Omistliga Ting (translates roughly to Irreplaceable Things). Had to add it to the old collection and I think you can see why. Signed “Pansarhierta”, I think it has been made by a couple that lives in Strömsund (you can visit their site for more information). To me, this artwork looks like something that you would have seen in a magazine from the 1930s, so it has a classic feel to it. The fact that they have incorporated our beloved Great Lake Monster (Storsjöodjuret) makes it an instant classic. In these parts there will be a good market for this. And as it happens, I saw this thing (whatever the hell it may be) very close to this very bridge back in 1977, so for me it is even more surreal for that reason as well. No wonder it speaks to me. I have seen a lot of art that features this mysterious creature in it, but this strikes me as being better than most. People who visit Omistliga Ting can buy it in two sizes, as posters – I just happened to spot one that was framed. Or check out the artists site.
