Long Description:
Skulpturen henviser til sagnet om Balders død fra den Nordiske Mytologi. Loke forvandler sig til kvinden Tøk og lokker den blinde Høder til at skyde Balder. Loke må derfor flygte og forvandle sig til en laks, så han kan skjule sig. På skulpturens ene side ses Tor med sin hammer, da han og de andre guder til sidst fanger Loke.

Granit skulpturen er fremstillet i 2004 af den lokale kunstner Jan Blik Pedersen.

The sculpture refers to the myth of the death of Balder, from Norse mythology. Loke transforms himself into the woman Tøk and tricks the blind Høder into shooting Balder. Loke must then make his escape and transforms himself into a salmon, in order to hide. On one side of the sculpture, Tor can be seen with his hammer, as he and the other gods finally catch Loke.

This granite sculpture was made in 2004 by local artist Jan Blik Pedersen.
