A Sarcophagus for a Queen

Show trailer
Bjørn Nørgaard and a team of Czech glass artists in the demanding process of creating a grave monument for Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik.

When Bjørn Nørgaard is invited to design a tombstone for Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik, it is the beginning of a demanding artistic process. Nørgaard designs a sarcophagus made of several tonnes of glass, which a team of Czech glass artisans are tasked with making. But even for some of the world's best craftspeople, this is a task that pushes their abilities to the limit, before the sarcophagus is ready to be installed in Roskilde Cathedral. We look over their shoulders, as the process is described with great respect for both the craftsmanship, the artistic vision and the regent couple.
