mannen som 1

In the south-eastern corner of Universitetsplatsen (University Square) stands the sculpture “The man who broke out from the rock”. The rock in the sculpture symbolises the darkness of ignorance. The artwork was created in granite by Axel Ebbe and donated by the City of Lund in honour of the university’s 250th anniversary in 1918.
