Stetind has a special place in many hearts and is a well known landmark in Norway. It’s a strong and monumental mountain and seen from both sea, land and air it’s quite impressive. Mountains represent resilience, stability and perspective. They tell us that we need to be brave, humble and prepared with flexibility and strength. Climbing a mountain depicts inner elevation and deep satisfaction.
In Norway we’ve always made songs, poetry and art to honour nature. Inspired by nature and this mountain in specific, an idea of a very strong silver amulet is finalised. I’ve filled it with inspiration and memories from this magic mountain that I’ve grown up next to.
Together moving mountains – is the text on the back side of the amulet. Stetind became Norway’s national mountain in 2002. It was called “the world’s ugliest mountain” by the Englishman W.C. Slingsby – when he didn’t succeed climbing to the top in 1904.
