Carved in Stone

Along your nice stroll in Nykøbing’s pedestrian street Østergågade in the center, you’ll stumble upon some very impressive stone heads on the right side of the theater (Ostergågade 2). These massive art pieces have been carved in granite by Thomas Kadziola, and artist and sculptor born in 1962.

They were actually made – but in smaller size – in the same style as the stone figures of his famous monument called Dodekalitten, which consists in an alignment of 12 massive granite heads, some reaching up to 9 meters high and 45 tons. The name of this Stonehenge-like monument comes from Greek, meaning “12 stones”. Nykøbing has only 4, but they are definitely worth seeing !
