The Five Continents

Jarntorget, the Iron Square, is one of the busiest places in Goteborg. People crossing streets, streets crossing tramways, tramways crossing the sky. And if, in this huge mess of bodies and cars, you had the time to forget the ice on the ground walk erect without loosing balance and look up in the sky you could spot this allegory of the continents of the World, as it was perceived one century ago. Each female silhouette, sitting on her own, offers her shoulders to the others. Hasn't it always been like this after all?
