Artist's description:

Sverd i fjell (English: Swords in Rock) is a commemorative monument located at the Hafrsfjord fjord, just outside the city of Stavanger in Norway.

The monument was created by sculptor Fritz Røed from Bryne and was unveiled by king Olav V of Norway in 1983. The three swords stand 10 metres tall and are planted into the rock of a small hill next to the fjord. They commemorate the historic Battle of Hafrsfjord that took place there in the year 872, when King Harald Fairhair gathered all of Norway under one crown.

The largest sword represents the victorious Harald, and the two smaller swords represent the defeated petty kings. The monument also represents peace, since the swords are planted into solid rock, whence they may never be removed.

Giant 150x100cm Direct Print on Brushed Aluminium – Pure elegance with an exclusive BUTLERFINISH® look. The photo is printed directly onto a 3 mm thick, sturdy brushed aluminium Dibond with a BUTLERFINISH® look. Two thin aluminium sheets sandwich a black polyethylene core to ensure maximum stability and water resistance. Thanks to the brushed surface, the aluminium backing gives the artwork an extraordinary, metallic appearance. During production of the cover sheet, the surface is ground horizontally to produce a brushed effect. The result is eye-catching: The areas of the photograph that are white or very light are not printed, but instead take on the appearance of the brushed aluminium surface.

The direct UV-print is colour-fast, light-resistant, and even damp-proof. The artwork on brushed aluminium Dibond is therefore not only suitable for indoor areas such as the bathroom or the kitchen, but also for covered outdoor areas protected from rain and direct sunlight. The aluminium Dibond backing is extremely light, and the practical hanging system ensures it is easy to hang on the wall, even with large formats. Simply unpack the artwork, hang it up, and enjoy its floating, metallic effect on your wall.
