Artist's Description

Her name is Karin Boye and she is the only namegiven woman honoured by a statue in our city. She is natural human size and placed near the central library,
not very far from Poseidon at Götaplatsen in Gothenburg.
People put a flower or a twig of green in her hand, paying tribut to her beloved poetry and mourning her all too early death by suicide.

A famous quotation would sound something like this:
“Oh yes it hurts, when buds burst open!”
