Kristus i Kristineberg
BY
Debora Elgeholm

In 1946 a rock formation appeared after a mine explosion in the small town Kristineberg, in Northern Sweden. The formation was interpreted as being an image of Christ. Two mine guides share their stories about the occurrence, as well as a personal story about a wedding trip to the mine, and these experiences are linked to a vision of the Virgin Mary outside Stockholm in 2012. The connection between these stories is the photography that was taken as proof that the revelations really happened. At the same time, it is clear how essentially personal these experiences are.
