Swords in rock - Sverd i fjell

In Stavanger, Norway stand three gigantic bronze swords. These swords are firmly set in solid rock and are to represent peace. The peace they represent comes from the time Harald Hårfagre (Fairheaded Harald) united Norway into one kingdom at the battle of Hafrsfjord in 872. Fritz Røed was the designer of this monument which was unveiled in 1983 by Norway's King Olav. The larger of the three swords represent Fairheaded Harald's sword. These swords are found at Møllebukta which is on the southern shore of Hafrsfjord and just south of Stavanger. #Fairheaded #Fritz_Røed #Harald #Hårfagre #JJH #Monument #Norway #Sculpture #Stavanger #Sverd_i_fjell #Swords_in_Rock #Three_Swords
