The story behind the exhibition:
A few human beings stumble from under yet another Ice-age. One day one of them is walking about, trying to find something to eat. Under a frozen bush of berries the human finds a book. It describes ancient festivities. The human being doesn’t understand everything in the book but the main idea is a little bit like this: Clean virginal birth, half human birthday kid, a holy woman who’s in a relationship with a god but is also hanging out with a nice carpenter, smart triplets, multicolored boxes with bowes, children with a crazy look in their eyes, some kind of a light being, maybe an elf queen, red men with hats and bags, glitter, good atmosphere and cinnamon. “Sounds good” thinks the human. “I’m going to do something similar.”
Location: Exhibition hall, on the ground floor of the Nordic House.
Open every day 12 – 17.
Welcome! Free entrance.
