The Fjord Lady is Nibe’s most famous sculpture and a symbol of the town. If you drive along the fjord to Nibe, you are met by the tall, beautiful sculpture, and if you arrive by boat, you will see the Fjord Lady when approaching the harbour.
Thorvald Odgaard, who is the artist behind the sculpture, is one of the most famous artists in Nibe, and his works often portray angels in different sizes and shapes. His sculptures are found at many locations around the town, for instance the ‘Angel’ at Nibe Church and the ‘Dragon Fountain’ at Nibe School. You can also experience his art at Aalborg Zoo, where he has decorated the entrance, or at Marselisborg Castle in Aarhus. In 1997, Odgaard had his debut as a jewellery designer, and his creations are sold locally in Nibe.
