Renowned sculptor, Anders Svor (1864-1929) was born in Hornindal. He was commissioned for several public assignments and many of his works are displayed in Oslo and elsewhere.

Anders Svor´s artworks are characterised by the simple, clean and natural. Svor was a natural realist, heavily influenced by neo-romanticism. The gallery features sculptures in plaster, clay and bronze.

In Hornindal, Anders Svor grew up as a farmer´s son, and even as a child he displayed exceptional wood carving skills. 
At 17, he worked as a wood carver at Brødrene Hals piano factory in Christiania, while studying at the Royal School of Art and Design.

He made his artistic breakthrough in 1891, winning the gold medal for his sculpture "David" at the International Art Exhibition in Berlin.
