Beautiful all year round water fountain designed by the artist Carl Nesjar, in the city centre of Kristinehamn.

Carl Nesjar, who is one of Norway's most famous artists, was commissioned by Pablo Picasso to build his largest monumental concrete sculpture in Kristinehamn's archipelago in 1965.

Nesjar was a versatile artist. This particular Carl Nesjar fountain has water flowing all year round which varies its appearance according to season. This stainless steel monument is situated in Kristinehamn's City Park.
