Vegskille: The Dragon

Dragon

About

Ringebu Stave Church is the most visited attraction in Ringebu, and comprises the feature on which the sculpture “Dragon” by Linda Bakke is based. Inspiration for this artwork is drawn from a portal with decorative wood carvings at the church entrance. The portal comprises 15 dragons/snakes entwined and with each biting the tail of the other. From the front, the “Dragon” is almost identical to one of these – here “lifted” out of the portal and given three-dimensional form.

“Mammoth” in Fåvang and “Dragon” in Ringebu are two sculptures that call attention to the link between the villages, and reflect the distinctive character and interconnection, and at the same time allude to the local identity and history, of the two communities. The sculpture is made of stainless steel, grade 316, and has been created using many small pieces that have been hammered, adapted, welded, brushed, and polished.

Linda Bakke (born 1973) is from Stange, and works with sculptures and art in public-space projects that are location specific, visually striking, and often laden with mystical, historic, or mythical content. www.lindabakke.webs.com
