The oldest “Way of the Cross”  (Calvary) in Germany is located In Lübeck, the famous Hanze city in the North of Germany; it’s been there since 1493. With a distance of 1650 meters the walk goes from the St. Jacobi Church to the Hill of Jerusalem.

This year four sculptors were invited to create abstract sculptures in the form of a stèle. At the same time three sculptures were created to commemorate the four clergymen from Lübeck that were killed by the fascists during the Second World War.

Eight sculptures were created on total, in Swedish granite and in steel.

I made two sculptures in granite:ⓒkarin-van-ommeren-sculptureSculpture for the “Way of the Cross,” placed on Gustav-Radbruck-Platz, Lübeck, Germany

    I love the intersection of planes on the Way of the Cross piece, and the framing of the light. so much hard material to move – your ‘vision’ has become very clear. It must feel great to be working so productively. Lesley
