Bengt Erland Fogelberg’s Norse God Statues

Bengt Erland Fogelberg’s “big trio” is a set of three large marble statues that were built in 1866 for the National Museum’s statue courtyard. Not unlike the beautiful Greek and Roman statues of old, these effigies represented three of the most important Norse god’s: the wise Odin, the strong Thor, and the beautiful Baldur. 

From 1960 until late 2018, two of the statues were moved elsewhere, sometimes on display and sometimes in storage. The trio has been complete since 2019, and now stands in the museum’s courtyard.
