Arnold Haukeland, Runer (1979–1980)

The sculpture is made of acid-resistant steel, a material he liked well, because it did not change character over time and remained as intended. The same year he made this sculpture, he stated that he "to some extent borrows ... the light from the sun and throws it back to humans through the sculptors."
