Interesting project. Thanks for the links Geoffrey. Do you know of any explanation or details in English?

Thanks

Although my Norwegian is rusty (i.e., non-existent), Google Translate suggests that this fellow is selling these sculptures for 15,000 Norwegian krones each (roughly 1400 GBP or 2400 CAD). They are cast copies of an original sculpture he created. Apparently, he has recently been elected to the Romanian Parliament (?!), and is thus moving and must sell them.

Cheers!

good of you to write this, lisa :-) . leonard briefly mentions the sculptor (although not by name) in the video below. poor visual quality, but one can hear what leonard is saying. fast-forward to about 1:30 :-)
