6. Hjärtats saga (Heart’s Story), 2015

The beginning of a life-long love story took place in Pargas. Why is this particular one special?

“Heart’s Story” (2015) is made by sculptor Armi Nurminen. The sculpture is a symbol of the love between Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877), who became national poet of Finland and Fredrika Tengström (1807-1879), who was a novelist and the first female journalist in Finland. They met, fell in love and got engaged here in Pargas.
