Last week the wordpress feature of snowfall kicked in again.
It did the same in real life. The whole town looks like a Christmas card. This time I’ve focused on sculptures, and especially sculptures that look significantly different when covered in snow.
First: My favourite, all categories. I can’t find an English word matching “bältespännare” but the statue depicts two gladiators locked together by their belts. (Literal translation: those strapped together by their belts.) Suggestions anyone?
The rest, I’m afraid, are lions. There’s a lot of lion sculptures in this town. This town is far from the natural habitat of a lion. This first one is posted, with a twin, by the entrance to Röhsska (eg The Röhsska Museum of Fashion, Design and Decorative Arts). And the next one guards, also with a twin, the entrance to the main building of the university.
Last but not least are creatures you might recognize from here. Whatever mythological world they come from I find it hard to believe they naturally have icicles from their teeth.
That’s all for today, folks!
Tomorrow will bring the Swedish text to this post, along with a little snowy playlist.
