The Three Swords.




















This monument (Swords in Rock) was unveiled by king Olav back in 1983.
The swords were a gift from a local bank, and made out of stone by sculptor Fritz Røed.
They are 10 metres tall.

In the year 872 several kings were fighting here at Hafrsfjord, the battle was to unite all small kingdoms into one,
.
King Harald Fairhair won and became the king.

This is Vilma and Vanessa from Lima (Peru)
Vanessa is living in Norway, with husband and child.
Thanks for being my models V&V.
