The exhibition tells the story of flint - the lifeblood of the Stone Age. Flint was used for tools, weapons and for status symbols. The tools were used for everything from hunting, harvesting grain, clearing forests, and building houses and boats. It was indispensable and ensured survival, life and status.
The captivating tale of flint and life during the Stone Age comes alive through animations projected on the walls, complemented by a compelling soundscape and mesmerizing storytelling. Visitors are invited to gather around a digital "campfire" positioned at the heart of the exhibition, creating a warm and inviting ambience for reflection. Installed around the fire, visitors are transported back to life in the Stone Age and other early oral cultures, where stories were shared around the fire.
The exhibition is designed to merge with Bjørn Nørgaard's impressive room decoration, where the walls are covered with large boulders. Bespoke display cases shaped like the underlying stones have been made to display a large selection of flint and flint tools. The wall decoration and the unique showcases work together as a canvas for the digital exhibition layer that unfolds around the exhibited objects.
