Stril Polar

By spotogspindel | February 10, 2012

Today is the Christening of STRIL POLAR. Earlier this week I was onboard getting all the artwork in place. So let me show you the ship and the art:

Let´s start in the mess. This picture of a sea-house from Hareid.

Another little sea-house, this one in Dimna.

And this is what they look like up on the walls.

Right next to the mess is the smokers lounge, there´s even a window between the two rooms.

The most famous attraction in Stavanger is the big sculpture called “Swords in rock” in Hafrsfjord. They are absolutely beautiful, so symbolic towards Norwegian history, and did I mention beautiful?

So this is my inspiration for this picture.

Right next door again there is another lounge. In here you find two more pictures:

Moving south to the Stavanger area, this is in Hå.

This picture is at least partly from Runde, as seen from Flø, in Sunnmøre.

Sorry, the lighting is not so good on the next couple of photos, but you see the pictures in their surroundings.

In the conference room this landscape from Sunnmøre is decorating the wall. It´s simply called “The ferry”. Only when you grow up and live in the islands and coastal area in a country like Norway do you truly appreciate the importance of this “life-line” that the ferry actually is. Still today, there are a lot of people dependent on the ferry to get to a hospital for instance.

And on the wall (in the still-partly-a-storage-room-before-everything-is-ready-for-the-big-day!)

This sea-house lies in Dåfjorden in Fitjar, one of my neighboring islands. There are so many new and boring sea-houses, and constantly fewer old ones with character.

It decorates the Captain´s cabin.

And finally, the picture in the Chief officer´s cabin, from Lofoten.

It´s such a beautiful supply ship, and I do wish Møkster and the crew onboard all the best of luck as they start their work outside Hammerfest next month!
