Commemoration of Niels R. Finsen, born in Tórshavn (1860-1904). He was a Faroese physician, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Medicine (1903) and is often considered the father of radiology. As a child he carved "NRF" in the rock behind the plaque.

The plaque reads:

"On this rock Niels R Finsen carved his name as a youth. His achievement has etched it into the hearts of all."
