Brains on Stone
Brains on Stone are classic Bertil Vallien objects, resting on a stone plinth.
“Brains originates in an artistic theme that I began working with in the eighties, inspired by a girl named Karolina Olsson who slept – or, according to speculation, who intentionally opted out of life for 32 years. I made a collection of expressions and names like Albert Einstein, Caesar, Pablo Picasso, the gods Thor and Oden, and more.”
– Bertil Vallien
The collection, which is part of the Kosta Boda Artist Collection, launched in 1999.
