Steinkjerringa. Mor Norge

Steinkjerringa, the stone woman, was sculpted by Sigurd Sorensen in 1898. It was to be erected in front of the Kongsgård school in Stavanger, but it never was.

In 1925 550 Nok was collected for the transportation of Steinkjerringa to Høg-Jæren , and she was finally placed here in 1927.

The statue weighs 3 tons, and was cut into 3 parts for transport.

She is often called Mor Norge, Mother Norway.
