Stavanger Cathedral:
Norway's oldest cathedral - finished around 1150 AC

Broken Column in Stavanger

The artwork is made by Antony Gormley, a London-based sculptor also known for "Another Place". It took 4 years to decide whether or not to place the figures in Stavanger. The project is financed by the Municipality of Stavanger, Stavanger Art Society and Rogaland Art Museum. Each sculpture is fitted 1.95 meters lower than the previous. The first iron man is placed at the Art museum some 40 meters above sea level. The last sculpture is found in the sea just outside of Natvigs Minde downtown Stavanger.
