On a Lolland field with a view of Smålandsfarvandet, a monument is created that combines sculpture and music in the middle of a landscape full of history, for a unique overall experience.
The dodecahedron (Greek: Tolvsten) is 12 stone pillars, each 7-9 m. High and each weighing 25- 45 tons, where the upper 2 m are carved as heads, all facing the center in a circle with 40 m in diameter.
Under a circle of seating stones, a 12-channel sound system is built in, which lets the spatial electroacoustic music ring inside the circle daily during the day’s light hours all year round.
60,000 guests annually visit the Dodecahedron and experience the magic of the circle.
The dodecahedron can be freely visited at all hours of the day all year round. The music sounds in the bright hours of the day.
Take the walk through the forest. Stop at the edge of the forest and enjoy the view of the Dodecahedron and over the waters of Småland. Walk in silence the last part of the trip through open countryside up to the Dodecahedron.
Lonely Planet highlights the Dodecahedron as a “Top Choice” art experience.
Statens Kunstfond writes “The dodecahedron is art that is worth traveling for”
