It is the world’s second-tallest sculpture of a moose. Moose are often called elk in Europe. It was officially unveiled on 15 October 2015. 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.
