Ørsted bros.

Two years ago we were on a short break in Copenhagen and sought out the statue of Hans Christian Ørsted, discoverer of aluminium and electromagnetism. He stands proudly at the focal point of the Ørstedsparken, with the three Norns – the Norse goddesses of destiny – at his feet.

We were amused to also happen upon Anders Sandøe Ørsted, tucked away at the back of the park and looking somewhat disgruntled at all the attention his big brother is getting – did all that science stuff really outdo being Prime Minister?
