Also sculptural details on buildings, as well as more more modern-type public art. What's represented here is not everything that I saw — there were a number of pieces that I, regrettably, did not photograph.
I also didn't do the best job of documenting the names, locations, and other details. Some I did take a picture of the plaque detailing such information; others, not. Some I was able to locate relevant web pages; others, not, such as this one.
If I ever go back to Stockholm, I'd like to visit the sculpture garden for this artist, Carl Milles.

Also at the Royal Palace, near the front promenade.
In a more modern vein, there was La Mano.
And "Sjaan" (1987) by Sigurdur Gudmundsson (b. 1942).
And in a lighter vein . . . Bananas in Trees . . .

Little Dancing Man by the Water.
In Växjö, "Durus och Mollis" (2008) by Monika Gora.
And last, but certainly not least . . . because it's all about the yarn . . .
