Art code: 1 232 802 Copy the art code

Evert Jan Luchies Profile picture Sverd i fjell (Dutch: "Swords in rock") is a memorial monument located in the Hafrsfjord of the city of Stavanger in Norway. The monument was created by sculptor Fritz Røed from Bryne and was unveiled by King Olaf in 1983. The monument includes three large swords in a rock commemorating the Battle of Hafrsfjord in 872, when Harald I managed to form Norway into one kingdom.

The largest sword represents the victorious king, while the other two are meant to symbolise the not-so-fortunate opponents. The monument also serves as a symbol of peace, as the swords are sunk into the mountain and thus "cannot be used" again. The swords are about 9.2 metres high and are based on historical swords found throughout the country.

This long exposure time photo of three large swords in the rocks near Stavanger in Norway, was taken during the blue hour on a Summer evening in August 2023
