Splendid sky, with that silhoutette so strongly suggesting loneliness, waiting, and loss.

Nice work.

Historia

Statyns topp är 62 meter över havet, och på 52 meters höjd kan ni gå ut på en utsiktsplattform och blicka ut över Göteborg. Plattformen är rund så ni kan se ut både över hamninloppet och in mot stan.
Du kan antingen åka hissen eller gå uppför trapporna i tornet.Tornet invigdes 1933. Statyn heter egentligen "Kvinna vid havet". Hon är fem meter hög.

Skulpturen är en symbol för de hemmavarandes tankar och förböner. På sockeln är det inristat 690 namn på svenska sjömän som omkom under första världskriget.

Deras namn är placerade brevid de fartyg de var på. Sammanlagt omkom 690 sjömän på 98 olika fartyg.

Thank you. I´ll do some research and present it here
