The Beasts of Malmö

10 March, 2011

Malmö, Sweden, has an alarmingly large stone wildlife population. Only the Natural History Museum in London rivals central Malmö for animal adorned fascades.  The collection below is but a sampling of the variety of species featured throughout this somewhat charming, somewhat shady city.

    Interesting how the sculpted animals range from quite realistic (horse), to a bit awkward (the squirrels) to sort of human looking (the monkeys) to very stylized (the owl). … Is Malmo shady because of trees, clouds, or both?

    Do pardon my use of slang. Malmö’s shadiness comes from, not foliage, but it’s reputation as being a danger city (dangerous by Scandinavian standards).

    My favorite is the Owl. I find the monkeys to be rather menacing.
