Her Swedish name is “Vårens Huldra”, a being personifying the spirit of Spring in Nordic folklore. She is as naked as the tree behind her on this day, April 15, 2012. Her location is the Bothanical Garden, Gothenburg, Sweden.

This is a sculpture by Gunnar Nilsson (1904 – 1995). In his youth Nilsson
had been a pupil of Charles Despiau and Paul Niclausse (1879 – 1958);
He was a member of the Royal Academy of Sweden, and was then the most famous of the Swedish sculptors working in Paris.
