Created by the noted Swedish sculptor Georg Gunmar (1915-1976) this piece is actually a study, or 'maquette', for what would eventually be cast in bronze or cut in stone. His subjects were almost always animals in motion and a dozen or so public works are found all over Sweden, many in Stockholm. The Lynx was his favorite form and we have a great example here from 1955.
