British sculptor Antony Gormley has no less than 23 of his trademark life-size sculptures in and around the centre of Stavanger and together these distinctive cast-iron figures constitute ‘The Broken Column’. They aim to illustrate the various facets of the city; there’s one figure beside the cathedral, another beside the fish market on the main square, Torget.
