I didn’t notice the swastika below until after taking this photo. I was appalled and Googled the explanation for this. It was reportedly the logo for the Carlsberg beer company that built the museum in the 1880’s having no connection to the Nazi swastika, instead representing good luck.

The Glypotek has a world class collection of art. The Egyptian antiquities are remarkable. I will post some amazing wooden, painted art from 2700 BC soon!

Cheers to you from beautiful and sunny Solskin~

  1. That swastika symbol goes back a long way, a Celtic, Indian and Greek symbol, and I think even Chinese too. It does look alarming up there on that old ceiling, I think I would have felt the same if it had been my picture I’d taken. It’s amazing how powerful icon images are, whatever ‘we’ associate them with ‘is’ what it means to us. I’m taking a guess the Nazi’s thought it would bring them luck? Obviously not that effective!

    Copenhagen looks like a beautiful place with some wonderful history, thanks for taking me on your trip! 🙂
