"Poseidon" Götaplatsen & Art Museum Tip by Joacim
Götaplatsen & Art Museum, Göteborg: 20 reviews and 27 photos
This statue is a well known siluette of Gothenburg. It is just at the top of "Avenyn", the big avenue in Gothenburg full of shops and restaurants. The statue is generally known as "Kålle med torsken", which means Carl with the cod.
The statue is made in bronz by the famous Swedish artist Carl Milles and was inaugurated in 1931. The statue is also called ?The revenge by Milles?. The reason for that is that if you stand on the stairs to the Art Hall, some intimate part of the statue is abnormally big. This is said to be done deliberate by Milles when some citizens in the city wanted to censor the statue.
