The painting shows three figures, one of which holds a child, one holds green plants in both hands, and one is seen in profile. Two bodies holding hands are seen behind two radiant circles. At the top center of the painting is a yellow sun with an upside down triangle on top of it.

Morning Tour in Monica Sjöö

Baby Tour in Swedish

27.6 2023 – 8.8 2023


Start the day with a tour for you and your baby! On Tuesday mornings during the summer, adults with children aged 0-13 months are invited to take part in a guided baby tour of the exhibition “Monica Sjöö: The Great Cosmic Mother”. We will look at and think about art at a leisurely pace and explore Monica Sjöö’s paintings together.
Photography of part of the exhibition area. In a purple room, the painting "Mother Earth in Pain, Her Trees Cut Down" is placed on narrow iron pipes. In the panting, a figure with a sun on the stomach is surrounded by chopped down trees in green on one side, and on the other a dark landscape with two black birds, one white bird and a cave.
