“…embraces the Queen’s deep interest in archeology and links a special bond to Gorm the Old and Harald Bluetooth.
Queen [is] sitting in her favorite reading corner at Fredensborg Slot with an open book, about archeology, on her lap. On the wall behind her one sees from the bird’s-eye view, a plan of the monuments at Jelling, when the first kings traveled more than 1,000 years ago…
The portrait is divided into 12 different fields and surfaces painted on wood with relief structure in which each field is its own universe…”
