  Evert Taube on the Järntorget
by sim1

I thought this statue on the Järntorget looked so cute that I couldn't resist to take a picture of it. In his hands he has a sheet of musicpaper that cought my attention and after a little research I found out that this is the statue of the famous Evert Taube. The statue is made in bronze, lifesize and by K G Bejemarks. The location is close to Taubes favourite pub Gyllene Freden. In his hands he holds his latest composition. The statue is a gift from Ikea (the famous furniture shop from Sweden) on the 18th of June 1985.

At his feet there was a little bouquet of fresh flowers, sticking up from the snow. A touching symbol and a show of the love and respect the Swedish have for Evert Taube. The man who is probably the most loved and famous of all artists in Sweden. Evert Taube was a poet, troubadour, writer, artist and adventurer (1890 - 1976)

The square the statue is located is the Järntorget; Stockholms next oldest square. Only the Stortorget is older.
