reincarnation at odenplan

This is a sculpture "Off Hunting (for Sorrows)" by Christian-Pontus Andersson. Bodies of porcelain symbolize the transition of our old, worn-out bodies on the way to Paradise. It's all part of that big art exhibition known as the Stockholm Subway. See more?

Really amazing. I saw it in the Underground Odenplan when I was very busy but I had to stop my speed and look at it.
I do not know if I like it but it gave me strange feelings. I got a bit afraid!
A very good photo, Per!

God Morgon! This is an awesome sculpture, very visually stimulating! Great shot!

Pia K said...

Wow, that looks fascinating! Must hop off at Odenplan one of these days then.

Interesting concept. I really like it!

Art in the subway is a never-ending theme, fortunately.

JM: Thanks. This shot was rather ad lib but it turned out well methinks.

Lena Johansson: I have mixed feelings as well but the sculpture certainly seizes the imagination and I'm sure that's what any artist would hope for.

Carrie Hayes: Godkväll! Visually stimulating, indeed. Snapping this one was fun.

Pia K: You'd better hop off at Odenplan then and give us your verdict in the matter...

Halcyon: Thanks!

Appreciate all your comments, folks.

Thanks for showing me! I have totally missed this beautiful piece of art. On the other hand, I hardly ever stop at this subway station.

I was looking for a description of this sculpture and I found your blog!

I put a reference to your blog on my photo.

Thanks so much, I really couldn't find what it was about!

Odenplan is a magnificent station well worth a visit, Järnladyn. But you're right, my trips also seem to be taking me elsewhere most of the time.

Nenyaki: Happy to be of service! :) And thanks for the link.
