The sculpture consists of five spruce trunks laid so that they follow the slope of the hill to form a fan shape.

They can awaken thoughts of parts of a sundial pointing to the source of light – the sun. The five spruce trunks are an image of the five rings observed around the planet Saturn.

The title ‘Saturn’s hair’ refers to the sky: When the Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe was 16 years old, in 1563, he explored Saturn’s orbit. This became the beginning of the life work of Tycho Brahe.
