I think you all know about the adventures of Niel Holgersson and his geese.

This statue was made of bronze in 1966.Last year some young man destroyed it by putting some explosives in a hole in the goose. The head was blown off.... Fortunately it could be restored but it took more then a year to do so.... They have made the construction so strong that it hardly can be damaged again.

The statue now is back on where it used to stand.
