The sculpture Varde in Norwegian stone and stainless steel consists of split stones stacked in a tower formation. Each stone exposes a core characterised by its volcanic origin approximately 290 million years ago. The surface is the result of an ice age, where the gradual actions of motion and friction have left the stones with a rounded shape.
