With the support group, the city council leader and the crown prince couple in attendance, the art project “Jernrosene” (The Iron Roses) was unveiled at Oslo Cathedral on Saturday.

“Jernrosene” is a project that Tobbe Malm and Tone Mørk Karlsrud initiated after the terrorist attacks on July 22, 2011.

Blacksmiths from around the world, survivors, bereaved and other affected people were invited to forge roses.

It was the city council leader Raymond Johansen (Ap/Labour Party) and Lisbeth Røyneland, head of the National Support Group after the July 22nd events, who were responsible for the unveiling, and Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Crown Prince Haakon were also present.

In total, 77 people lost their lives in the attacks on the government quarter in Oslo and on Utøya in Buskerud.
