“Swords In Rock”: The Colossal Sculpture By Fritz Røed


The “Swords in Rock” monument seems to be an everlasting motif in the online Viking communities, created by Fritz Røed. It is placed in Møllebukta (the Miller’s Bay, Norway), which is a very popular recreation area in Stavanger. The Miller’s Bay and the monument lie at the bottom of Hafrsfjord, where the famous King Harald Fairhair won a great battle in 872 AD. Having defeated a lot of petty kings supported by the Danes, he is regarded as the king who united Norway into one kingdom.
