|Aka Hoegh's chef d'oevre|
Inspired already at the age of seven years by the integration of people, their houses, the abundant plant life and the ubiquitous rock faces, she started a project in 1993 by the name of "Stone and Man", involving 11 Nordic artists at that time who all literally left their mark in the rocks all over town.
It is an open project, and by now 31 pieces of art are to be found in the rocks of Qaqortoq, a truly unique open air collection.

|Lupines and Buttercup|
But this is not the only attraction the capital of the Kujalleq municipality has to offer - the museum, the churches, the beautiful fountain (which for a long time was the only one in Greenland), made of the distinct Igaliko sandstone, the lake and river - and flowers, flowers, flowers.

So the little red silhouette grew smaller and smaller on the pier as we made our way out of Qaqortoq.
Farewell, Aka! See you next year...
