The Picasso sculpture in Kristinehamn, a female head representing Pablo Picasso’s wife Jacqueline, is a 15 meter high sculpture at the Vålösundet on Lake Vänern, in the Kristinehamn archipelago, seven kilometers from the center of Kristinehamn.
The sculpture, which is the first concrete sculpture by Pablo Picasso on a large scale, and the largest so far in the world, consists of a concrete column, on which two slabs of natural concrete are attached. The larger slab, which shows Jaqueline’s face in profile, is six meters high, four meters wide and weighs four tonnes. The sculpture has been carved by sandblasting. It was inaugurated on Midsummer Eve 1965.
