The artist Marco Cueva has, with his stone sculptures, populated Rannebergen’s beautiful Park environment.  The sculptures engage in dialogue with existing stones in the area and together form a stroll path entitled Lustgården.

The route includes:

  1. “Nandhi”, a bull in black granite
  2. “White Rabbits”, two white rabbits in light granite
  3. “Neko”, a cat in pink granite
  4. “Pepe”, a skunk in gray granite
  5. “Adam”, a man in gray granite.

The artist describes this work:

The sculpture group depict five Fauns (animals with anthropomorphic features) and one human: Adam, portrayed with the help of stereotypes but not entirely without charm, loosely based on mythologies, images, films and stories that exist in our collective consciousness.

Marco Cueva is a sculptor, born in 1965 in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.  Cueva studied at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. He lives and works in Strömsbergsbruk.
