Esbjerg 003 – Fishermen’s Memorial Grove
The Fishermen’s Memorial Grove isn’t just made up of the rotunda.
In the interior part of the rotunda, there’s a group of bronze sculptures.
The bronze figures depict: A man picking up another, a young woman sitting and thirdly a mother and a child.
The motive of the woman and the child is to symbolise the basic human values, the home and the child.
The figures of a man helping another, is a symbol of helpfulness and companionship.
Oh, and the memorial is created by C. Th. Sørensen (Sculptor), August Kiel (Landscape architect) and V. Thorlacius Ussing (Director of the “Ny Carlsberg Fund”).
