Underground Art in Stockholm

June 2-6, 2013. We are in Stockholm, Sweden

The Stockholm Metro 

The Stockholm Metro is one gigantic art gallery. More than 90 of the 110 stations feature artworks created by some 150 artists. For the price of a Stockholm Metro ticket you can see sculptures, mosaics, paintings, art installations, inscriptions and reliefs from the 1950s through to the 2000s at most Stockholm Metro stations.

 You can buy fire medieval protection... Display this emblem and your fire will be first

 The best part of endless walking on cobblestone--coffee break!

This wall and other similar ones are at Arlanda (Stockholm) Airport
 Moe and I have a candle in an old bottle covered with wax. I was reminded of that by these candlesticks.

The Nobel Prizes were created by the Swedish industrialist, inventor, and armaments manufacturer Alfred Nobel. Since 1901, it has been awarded annually (with some exceptions) to those who have "done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses.Wikipedia
