A donation from Sparebank1 Hedmark art foundation, the sculpture was created by the Norwegian artist Linda Bakke in conjunction with the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA).

The height is 10.3 meters, and at the time of its completion it was about 50 centimeters taller than Mac the Moose in Canada.
