Christopher Polhem

This statue is of Christopher Polhem, one of Sweden’s greatest inventors and scientist. He has not got his origins from Gothenburg but there are several things named after him here, for instance an area close to central station and a sixth form school on Hisingen. Also he is the one who features the 500 Swedish crown banknote.
