Long Description:
Skulpturen af den knælende kvinde med blomster kan ses på Assistens Kirkegården i Svendborg.

Skulpturen som er lavet i bronce og placeret ovenpå en cement sokkel er ca 75 cm høj. Det forestiller en kvinde der knæler, og lægger en buket blomster foran sig. Faktisk er kvinden halvt nøgen, da hun kun er iført et skørt.
Skulpturen er bagerst ved familiegravstedet. Der er ingen oplysninger om kunstværket.

På gravstenen står.
Advokat Aage Ludvig Holberg Elmquist
18-5-1888 - 20-9-1962
Justitsminister 1945-1947
Medlem af Folketinget 1927-1932 og af Landstinget 1939-1953
Medlem af Svendborg Byråd 1937-1945

Omkring denne gravsten er der flere mindre gravsten på familiemedlemmer. Det er usædvanligt med en skulptur af denne slags på en grav. Skulpturen er sandsynlig skænket fordi Elmquist har været både justitsminister og medlem af det danske Folketing.



The sculpture of the kneeling woman with flowers can be seen at Assistens Cemetery in Svendborg. It is at a family grave belonging to the Elmquist family.

The sculpture which is made of bronze and placed on top of a cement plinth is about 75 cm high. It depicts a woman kneeling, laying a bouquet of flowers in front of her. In fact, the woman is half naked as she is only wearing a skirt.
The sculpture is at the back of a family burial site. There is no information about the artwork.

On the tombstone stands.
Lawyer Aage Ludvig Holberg Elmquist
18-5-1888 - 20-9-1962
Minister of Justice 1945-1947
Member of the Folketing 1927-1932 and of the Landsting 1939-1953 *(The Danish Parlament)
Member of Svendborg City Council 1937-1945

Around this tombstone there are several smaller tombstones on family members. It is unusual to have a sculpture of this kind on a grave. The sculpture was probably donated because Elmquist has been both Minister of Justice and a member of the Danish Parliament.
