Saint Barbara

A cabinet with Saint Barbara, the patron saint of tunnel builders. This cabinet is located in a utility tunnel of the great railway tunnel project Citybanan (City Line) - a double-track railway with two new stations that is to be built in a six-kilometer long tunnel under Stockholm city.

Patron saint of artillerymen, miners and mathematicians either. And she is not even Saint anymore. We need to inform these people that they lost their coverage...

With all do respect, a saint for tunnel builders?

I like this one. It looks great in black and white.

@B Squared: And a priest blessing it. I heard when I was down in the tunnel that this was very important for the guys and girls working there.

Why not? The church has manufactured "saints" for every other thingy under the sun!

Very nice and somewhat odd for a Swedish workplace. However, considering the fact that most workers down there are probably not Swedes, it suddenly makes sense.
