To Hvide Sande 75-year anniversary the city received a public gift made by the artist Leo Andersen, Gallery 63's art "Cycle". The artwork consists of 2 parts of "Earth's Navel" and "point. " Contributions from foundations, but also a great willingness among the city's businesses have made it possible.
The work is extensive, including the arth and the seven seas, and it makes a pronounced artistic impression on Hvide Sande. Cyklus is a national gift marking the occasion of Hvfide Sande´s seventy-fith anniversary in 2006, and the work was unveiled by the Danish sovereign, Queen Margrethe.
The individual elements in the work are:
" The earths´s navel " a hemisphere symbolising birth. Erected in the roundabout at the museum Fiskeriets Hus.
" The point " a globe with seven ships´ bows symbolising the seven oceans of the world, and that every journey departs from a point. The tiling marks a line, latitude 56 degrees, passing through Hvide Sande. Erected north of the lock below Fiskeriets Hus.
" Life´s stairway " an extensionof the point, leads to a place which can be used as a gathering point or a place for activities.
" The memorial " which is both a memorial to those who perished in the lifeboat in 1951 and a symbol of death, the end of the cycle of life. Erected west of the roundabout.
