Stockholm Metro Art
This blue cave is in T-Centralen station. It’s the main hub of Stockholm Metro. These beautiful blue patterns are created by artist Per Olof Ultvedt. In 1975, Ultvedt added these blue vines and floral motifs to the subway station. These blue patterns create a more relaxing atmosphere for busy commuters.
My daughter, Audrey, (3.5 yrs at that time) had a cute dialogue with me on the subway train when the train was approaching the T-Centralen station.
Audrey: ”Mommy! Look! Did you see that? It was so beautiful!” (She exclaimed in excitement.)
Mom: “No. I didn’t see it. What was that?”
Audrey: “You didn’t see it? A really beautiful cave!”
Mom: ”Really? I wasn’t looking at the window. I was looking at your face.”
Audrey: “Oh. It’s a pity you didn’t see it. But never mind. Don’t be sad. We can take the same train tomorrow. And we would sit on the same seat. And you’ll need to pay attention to the window all the time. And then you won’t miss that beautiful cave.”
I just smiled. I was touched that she was eager to share with me what she thought was wonderful. She repeated these words for several times, trying to comfort me for not seeing that beautiful cave. :)
She thought that every experience was able to be reproduced. What she didn’t know is that sometimes when you miss a view during traveling, you miss it forever. This is life. Sometimes you just cannot repeat it again. And there is no need to feel sorry about that. :)
