The Flying Trunk

H.C. Andersen sculpture; which is number four out of a series of eight.

The motive is taken from the fairy-tale of "The Flying Trunk" and depicts the trunk going to heaven, lightly resting on three pyramid-like towers. They symbolize the mosks in "Turk Land" as H.C. Andersen describes them in his fairy-tale. The sculpture itself is placed on a granite foundation that "hovers" 10 cm over the waters in the fountain.
