The Ladby Dragon has been nominated for the Funen Culture Prize
26. September 2017 | The Viking Museum at Ladby
Our beautiful Ladby Dragon has just been nominated by the Municipality of Kerteminde for the Funen Culture Prize. We are, of course, very proud.
“The Funen Culture Prize is presented every year by the Funen Cultural Region. The prize is given for either a cultural event or for a work that is of especially high artistic quality. That is measured by how much it has appealed to a broad audience in the course of the year and given them a unique experience within its field. In addition to honour and recognition, the Funen Cultural Prize includes 75,000 kr.”
The Ladby Dragon was finished after five years of construction, and launched for the first time in May, 2016. Now it lies in the water during the warmer months. In the autumn, it is pulled onto land to be maintained and covered for the winter.
We hope they can see the excellence of our Viking ship, The Ladby Dragon, which is an exact copy of the original Ladby Ship from about 925 AD. We are holding our breath!
