We pulled in to the parking lot to look at this column. We just happened to be driving past it and wanted to see what it was. The carvings were very neat but there wasn't any info to tell us anything about why it was...More

We stayed at the Hotel Elvester and it's a very interesting place. The owners have saved this column when no one else wanted it. It's a good thing. Impressive. The hotel is loaded with art work worth a walk around.

This piece of art has a very interesting History that I knew nothing about until after I returned home and read more about it. Worth a visit if you are in Lom, Norway. FREE. The artist supported the Quisling Regime during World War 2. Nobody...More

The column is next to the Elveseter hotel parking lot. It is worth a quick look while your are visiting.

The column is beautiful. Strangely I hadn't heard of it when I planned the trip. Its worth the stop. If you have time try to get a close look when you're there, I could not find images online showing the entire story.

This is a neat piece of art it's literally in the middle of nowhere! Easy parking to get out and enjoy plus walk around the hotel where it is at.

This Column was started in the mid18th century - but not finished until after WWII. more than 1000 years of Norwegian history can be seen on the 33 meter high column. Why it is placed by a local (beautiful) farm in the middle of Norway,...More
