Spirit and Environment

When I walk through the small streets in Taarbæk I cannot help noticing several birds decorated on the gables by the artist Jørn Mathiassen.
That adds harmony and good ambience to the walk as though you are welcomed by the town itself.

Taarbæk was founded as a fishing village in the 1600s, and the fish sold in Copenhagen. Today there is a small marina. The atmosphere is lovely in the town’s quaint streets and the harbour is cozy with a little restaurant.

    • I’m glad you noticed, Resa. I thought of you!!
      Jørn Mathiassen worked in many years for Danish TV and did illustration work for a children’s audience.
      But it was only a fraction of his vast production. Originally, he was an architect.
      All the best,
