I didn’t realize there was something remarkable about this “thing” I took on our visit to Karlskrona last summer. After hubby and I had a long walk around the place, we stopped outside the hotel we were staying and took a rest and enjoyed the beautiful sight of the sea. Then I noticed this huge stone sculpture in front of me. It was awesome when I turned to see the shining smooth wall and floor so I took a pic of it.
While looking at this pic again a few days ago, I thought this shouldn’t have been placed there for no reason. I searched the net and discovered that it was quite new when we were there. The sculptor, Pål Svensson is the man behind this four-meter high stone sculpture. And it was named, Bleke, which means the large water surface that lies still. The name was picked through contributions and won by Tommy Forsberg.
Anyhow, this sculpture stands outside Scandic Hotel in Karlskrona. It’s not just a sculpture to stare on but also something to sit on. It can also be a good rendezvous for friends. I should have sit on its floor but I didn’t think of it because I was overwhelmed with amazement and had fun staring on the image behind the glass.
Wow nice naman nyan. Semi-transparent yung surface nya no? Unang tingin ko parang optical illusion. 🙂
Oo nga, akala ko rin at first ay salamin at yung image nasa likod ko. Nasa loob pala yung image talaga.
The stone is somewhat made of “marble”?… ganda nga!…surely it will become a “landmark” soon,…murag modern version sa “stonehenge” baga,…much nicer if this picture has “marlene” sitting or standing on it, aron naay “model” ba!…hehehe,…missing you so much, regards to Leif,….muahhh!
Not really marble, Non, stone talaga siya. Kung alam ko nga lang na pwede palang umupo diyan ay ginawa ko na, hehee. Takot kasi ako baka madumihan yung floor…miss u2…i will…hugss!
That is really cool. I wish I could see it in person.
I’m sure you’ll find something like this in your place. Stone and glass sculpture artists are everywhere.
