Pictures from Skåne - Sweden - Lundagårdsstenen

rune stone in the foyer of the University Library, with Allhelgonabacken and sculpture park at The Museum of Sketches.
6 Feb 2010: bikes down to Allhelgonbacken and the University Library. The snow is white, the ice is covering the small ponds. I have never visited the library, in the foyer is a narrow four meters high rune stone known as the Lundagård stone. A bishop smashed it in pieces in order to use it in a staircase. In the end it was reassembled, and now it is in front of me. On the stone is beautiful figurative images in the form of wolves and face masks. Text to be interpreted as 'Torgel, son (of) Esge Björnsson, raised this stone after his two brothers, Olaf and Ottar, (which was) 'Landman' good'. The stone is dated to the 1000's. I go out and move to the Museum of Sketches sculpture park. Orpheus plays in the snow. A sculpture dive into the snow. I have a closer look at the reliefs on the museum's facade. One is a model for a relief with motifs from Swedish history.
