SCULPTURE

Søren Georg Jensen was originally educated as a silversmith in his father Georg Jensen’s company. Later he became a pupil of Professor Einar Utzon-Frank. In 1945 Søren Georg Jensen received the Academy’s lesser gold medal. His abstract sculptures become alive because of the pure beauty of the proportions, the balance between the massive parts and the outer lines, by catching the light and enabling the play of shadows, and by their ability to fill the space.

Please pay attention to how the sculpture at Søvej interacts with the surrounding buildings by mimicking the lines of the buildings.

The sculpture is a gift from Nakskov Trade Association in connection with its 100th anniversary in 1977.
