Rinkeby, artwork on platform wall

(23 September 2002)
This artwork, like much of the artwork at Rinkeby, reflects various kinds of finds from Swedish history and even prehistory. This is one of several works executed in gold leaf. The lettering is runes, a form of writing used in Sweden about a thousand years ago.
