Sverd I fjell (Swords in Rock) was created in Stavanger by sculptor Fritz Roed from Bryne and unveiled by King Olav V of Norway in 1983. The three bronze swords stand 10 metres tall and they commemorate the historic battle of Hafrsfjord when, in 872, King Harald Fairhair gathered all of Norway under one crown. The largest sword represents the victorious Harald, and the two smaller swords represent the defeated kings. The monument also exemplifies peace: the swords are planted into solid rock so they may never be removed.
