Et purus No 1 – monaco
The sculpture Et Purus No 1 will be placed in the Principality of Monaco by the Mediterranean Sea in Europe. The sculpture was accepted by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco in April 2016. The exact location in Monaco remains to be decided upon. It was Professor Ljungqvist's wish that the first sculpture was offered to Monaco. The reason is that it was in Monaco the international anti-doping work started under his command during the 1970-ies. Monaco is also the "home town" of high jumper Ljungqvist's international federation – the International Athletics Associations Federation – IAAF.
Unveiling ceremony: Preliminary in November 2017
Et purus No 2 – STOCKHOLM
The sculpture Et Purus No 2 will be placed in the Arena City in Stockholm/Solna, Sweden. It is contracted by Fabege AB – a public real estate company. Fabege joined the ambition to fight doping within society and sports in June 2016. Fabege have a high profile in terms of sustainable development, wellness and health responsibilities. As a builder, property owner and hosts for renters and their staff and visitors, Fabege is now broadening their ambition by steping up in the fight against doping as a public health issue, offering resources for education, the spread of information and raising awareness...and by allowing a site for the placement of the sculpture Et Purus No 2.
