Monument for seismologist Inge Lehmann by Elisabeth Toubro

Elisabeth Toubro has created a monument for the Danish seismologist Inge Lehmann (1888-1993, the woman who discovered Earth's solid inner core. It was unveiled on Monday the 15th of May 2017.

Ny Carlsbergfondet, who funded the monument, writes that it "shows a wave slicing through the sculpture and striking a round core that causes it to change direction. The body of the sculpture is cleaved in two, suggesting an earthquake and the related seismographic readings. The back of the monument shows an outline  portrait of Inge Lehmann."

The monument is placed in front of University of Copenhagen's old main building at Frue Plads in Copenhagen.
