Between Heaven and Earth
to His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik and Mary
Painter Lars Rasmussen: "I spent 14 days in January at the flower market in Copenhagen researching forms and colors schemes for the upcoming royal painting. It won't be a wedding bouquet, but I would like the painting to reflect the young couple's dynamics and drama. Besides the flowers, the painting will include ornaments and their monogram."
Mayor Bjørn Dahl: "Roskilde is Denmark's medieval royal center. The town has always had a close relationship with the royal house. We therefore find it natural to present the royal couple with a wedding gift from Roskilde. At the same time it commemorates that Roskilde would like to have a close relationship with the next generation of royalty."
