The smallest outdoor public artwork in Uppsala is a little bronze mouse that was created in 2007 by Anna-Karin Brus, in conjunction with 400th anniversary of the birth of Carl Linnaeus. This work of art has gained a great deal of attention because it not only celebrates Linnaeus, but also many living beings who generally don’t get any monuments, such as little mice. Linnaeus’s mouse is located on the Isle of Joy in the City Gardens. Can you find it?
