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.
