He started out by slaughtering a horse and putting the dismembered parts into preserve jars. Today, he is the royal purveyor of modern art. The sculptor, Bjørn Nørgaard, is the man behind the queen's Gobelin tapestries. The Gobelin tapestries are a birthday present for Queen Margrethe, paid for by the Danish business community. It took twelve years to complete the weaving of the Gobelin tapestries. When they were ready, they were hung up in the Great Baronial Hall inside Christiansborg Palace. The pictorial tapestries recount the history of Denmark from the time of the Vikings up to the present day, with a gaze into the future, and they have been called the greatest monumental artwork that has been produced in Denmark in the last 100 years.
