This is a stunning original vintage poster promoting the 900 years anniversary of the battle of Stiklestad in 1030. The poster is for the 1930 “Olsok” celebration in Trondheim.
Olsok ("Olaf's Wake" or "Olaf's Vigil") is a national day of celebration on July 29 in the Nordic countries of Norway and the Faroe Islands, and also in the provinces of Härjedalen in Sweden and Savonlinna in Finland.
King Olaf II Haraldsson of Norway is remembered as the Eternal King of Norway. July 29 is traditionally the date of the death of King Olaf at the Battle of Stiklestad, north of Nidaros (Trondheim), Norway, in 1030. King Olaf's martyrdom at Stiklestad appears to have contributed decisively to establishing Christianity throughout the nation of Norway.
The poster is in great condition. Light patina like fold marks and 2 tax stamps showing it's been approved to display in Belgium.
Mounted on linen.
