The piece is called 'Hun ligger' (She Lies) by Monica Bonvicini.
The sculpture is 12 meter tall and weighs 335 tons (the sculpture alone is 35 tons, then the pontoon/float weighs 300 tons).
- She Lies is meant to be a monument about change, longing and hope. A monument about construction: its beauty and its implicit visions, the beauty of the un-done as a permanent state of change . (Monica Bonvicini)
According to the artist, she has "translated" the painting 'Das Eismeer' (1823-24) by Caspar David Friedrich.
The sculpture will be properly unveiled by the Norwegian Queen Sonja, on Tuesday May 11th 2010.
