Photographer's Note

Looking at my former series of architectural images from the older parts of Røros, I discover I haven’t yet included much to show why the town was established in the first place… The copper mine!

What you see here is a monument made for celebrating the 350 years anniversary of Røros in 1994. The artwork is symbolizing the mining activity, and shows copper ore being transported to the melting place.

The woman is An-Magritt, the main character from the novel “Nattens Brød” by Johan Falkberget, the well-known author from Røros. The statue is placed in front of Røros Cultural Center, and the sculptor is Skule Waksvik.
