Altarpiece showing repentance

Hjorth, Bror

Jukkasjärvi Church, Sweden

“The left wing of the altar piece in Jukkasjärvi church, made by Bror Hjorth, shows preacher Lars Levi Læstadius talking to the people. One repenting sinner is breaking a barrel of vodka, whild another is giving back a stolen reindeer.” “Hjorth was one of Sweden’s best-known sculptors and painters, and was professor of art at the Royal University College of Fine Arts in Stockholm from 1949 to 1959.”
