Do you know where to find the smallest statue in Stockholm? It's called Järnpojke, also known as "little boy who looks at the moon". It's only 15 cm high and therefor is the smallest public monument in the swedish capital city. It was created by the swedish artist Liss Eriksson and inaugurated at this point in 1967. You can find it in the backyard of the Finnish church at Slottsbacken. Depending on the time of the year, he wears a cap, a scarf or other clothes people bring him.
