    Google Translation of Wikipedia for those not so fluent in Danish: Dodekalitten is a work of art under construction at Glentehøj (Kragenæs) on Lolland with a view of the Småland Sea about 300 m from the coast. The circle has 12 stone pillars, each 7-9 meters high, with the top 2 meters carved as heads. From the circle's sitting stone, electroacoustic music sounds in the bright hours of the day.
    The basic idea behind the artwork was created by composer Gunner Møller Pedersen and sculptor Thomas Kadziola. Gunnar Møller Pedersen invented the legend of the lolers, a fictional people who link the work of art to a performance about the people who immigrated to Lolland for approx. 7,500 years ago.
    The first chisel blow took place in November 2010, but at some point a conflict arose between the two authors, and Pedersen had to leave the project in 2016. The sculptor Kadziola is currently working on completing the work. In 2020, the work consisted of five finished stones, one unfinished and four roughly hewn stones. The five finished stones have the names Baldur, Lodir, Ydis, L'nir and L'dis. The dodecahedron is scheduled for completion in 2025. In 2017, composer Wayne Siegel entered the art project and has the task of programming and developing the sound side of the work.
    The Twelve Stones
    Baldur: Also called Balder, an almost unnaturally handsome man whom everyone, and not least the women, adored. The Greeks later called him "Adonis", and he did not like to fight, but liked to walk around naked in the summer. He was not very good at singing, but still participated in the choir. Raised on site June 21, 2014. The stone is black diabase.
    Lodir : Lolnir's brother and with the lolers he who looked after the fire and therefore was also a little dangerous to associate with. Raised on site June 21, 2014. The stone is black diabase.
    Ydis : (see possibly Idun). Traveled on site June 1, 2016.
    L'nir : (se evt. Lolnir). Raised on site September 30, 2018. The stone is red granite.
    Untitled: Traveled on site September 30, 2018.
    L'dis: Traveled on site 28 May 2020.
    Lolnir : The legendary chief of the Lols who invented the runes and thus the written language. [...] Lolnir / Odin is in mythology the same figure as Zeus and sometimes Apollo. He personifies the masculine, acting principle, and like Apollo, he often roamed alone for months.
    Idun (the White): Probably one of Baldur's daughters.

    The word DODEKALIT is derived from the Greek and means twelve stones. The work of art consists of twelve stone figures carved out of granite, 7 - 9 m high, each weighing 25 - 45 tons. The top 2 m are worked out as heads that all face the center of a circle with a 40 m diameter. The Dodekalitten are placed high in the "Lolländer Alps", with a view over the "Smålandhavet", near the Glentehøj burial ground and three other Bronze Age Hills. Between the figures, out of the seat stones, you can hear electro-acoustic music composed for the location all year round, from sunrise to sunset. The work of art consists of four elements: 1. The story. 2. The stone figures. 3. The music. 4. The landscape.In this protected landscape area, the Dodecalites appear as a new landmark for Lolland. Sculpture and newly composed music act as local innovations.The sculptor is Thomas Kadziola and the composer is Wayne Siegel.
    Dodekalitten is open all year round and entry is free.
