The title really should say it all: the Idyll I spotted today when we went for a ride out in one of Stockholms most popular parks, Djurg̴rden Рa Swedish green idyll.

Though I must admit that the weather wasn’t the most idyllic ;-)

Name of statue: Idyll
Sculptor: Christian Eriksson
Dated: 1907
Place: Kärleksudden (Love Cape), Djurgården.

This Swedish sculptor has worked in both Hamburg and Paris, where he went in 1883 to learn at École des arts décoratifs and École des Beauxarts and even worked at Falguiéres atelier.

At the world exhibition in Paris 1889 he participated with two bronze vases. He has done a lot of famous work spread even as far as to Chicago.

First a stroll from left to right of the statue, showing how most people would have looked on this statue.

Not me though. I’m always looking at the details and sometimes becomes very fond of the odd details, like those below….

Look what time has done with his toes, looking like he got chafes!!! And it looks like she is bleeding from a finger.

…and her butt, well you know I always love butts ;-)

    He really was a great sculpturer I like him very much together with Rodin they did a great job. And I can tell you it’s not easy at all to make such big statues ! When I went to Art School I saw them working ! slavery is nothing against it ! After last weeks very cold weather we are again in the 19°/20° Ouff !

    The weather has been horrid here since the disaster marknad on Saturday. Maybe it is the Chernobyl fall out…

    DjurgÃ¥rden… to me one of the most beautiful places in Stockholm.

    I also adore Erikson´s “BÃ¥gspännaren” skulptur at Kornhamnstorg.

    The details are always the best part, I think. But hey…I love my macro lens on my digital camera!
