Unhappy Fish

Unhappy Fish

This fish is made of Granite by an artist called PYE Engström. It's part of an artwork he calls Fåglarna, or The Birds. You can find this fish and a few others in a fountain (no water in it during the winter season) next to the amfitheatre at Eskilsparken. A big open, very green (in the summer that is) park in central Handen. 70 years ago this area was nothing more than a sandpit. The landscape architect who designed the park was Sture Koinberg. This is the perfect place for a picnic, some croquet, sunbathing, take your pick. Local theatre groups often performs at the amphitheatre. I often stop here and read the newspaper. Did I mention that the Haninge Cheer Elite often practice here?

Nice to see you have pink granite in Sweden like on la Côte de Granite Rose (the Pink Granite Coast) in the north of Brittany.
