Kirsti Anderssen - May 2016


Through myths, legends and magical storytelling I am exploring my Norwegian heritage. These sculptures are talismans that protect women, children, travelers, fishermen and warriors. They grant victory, prosperity, fertility, rain, sun and a plentiful harvest. Thus they merge the world of reality with the world of magic.
Kirsti Anderssen is a printmaker who lives and works in Lexington, Kentucky. Some of her prints are incorporated in these figures.
