H.R.H. Prince Henrik (1934-2018) first made the royal work of art Dronningen (the Queen) as a chess piece. The chess set was a gift to Crown Prince Frederik at his 20´st birthday.
The sculpture made in bronze is two meter high and mounted on a beautiful block of granite. The royal sculpture was bought by a local initiative in Gråsten, celebrating Prince Henrik´s 80´st birthday and since given to Sønderborg Municipality as a gift.
