I originally took this photo of The Belt-bound Fighters – Bältesspännarna – (sometimes called The Knife Wrestlers) in 2013. Here’s a little bit more about the sculpture and it’s history gleaned from the net.
It’s always interesting to see what history museums choose to present, and the way they present it. It’s also telling to see what history they avoid presenting. Lisbon’s Museu de Marinha – the Maritime Museum – is a case in point.
