Vebjørn Sand is a world artist who is appreciated as a modern-day Leonardo da Vinci.

Pastor Torp visits Vebjørn Sand at the Rose Castle on the Holmenkollen Hill on the outskirfts of Oslo, and Vebjørn tells Jan-Aage about his development as a painter from the early childhood days. He has endeavored to learn from the Great Masters, and this has all led to his passionate artistic projects for the timeless values of Democracy, Justice, and Humanism. 

The Rose Castle is the size of 1 1/2 football fields, an outdoor arena that stands out in the beautiful Oslo scenery - five symbols of gold that can be seen from downtown Oslo - and includes more than 150 unique artworks, highlighting the Norwegian Resistance Movement against the Nazi Occupation; the Soviet and Norwegian prisoners of war under Nazism; and the witnesses of the Holocaust against six million Jews, during World War II.
