Jens Pauli Heinsen Memorial Statue

Memorial statue for famous writer Jens Pauli Heinesen from Sandavágur

Jens Pauli Heinesen (1932-2011) was a Faroese writer from Sandavágur. He was one of the most important novelists of the Faroe Islands. This also shows in his recognition: Four times he received the Faroese Literature Prize and one time the Faroese Cultural Prize.

In March 2016 the municipality of Vágar donated a memorial statue of the famous local writer. The statue is located in the center of the village. Local sculptor Andrias Andreassen built the statue.
