Paula’s Black and White Sunday: SculptureTheodor Lundberg created this statue of Christopher Polhem, (1661-1751) a Swedish scientist, inventor and industrialist. He was born in Gotland in a village northeast of Visby where this statue stands on the grounds of Drotten Church. Having a particular interest in mathematics and mining, one of his contributions was a process for lifting and transporting ore from mines. It consisted of a track system for lifting the ore, powered entirely by a water wheel. Human labour was needed only for loading the containers.
