'Convolvulus' is a symbolical sculpture depicting a young woman. The title derives from the Latin name of the field bindweed, 'convolvulus arvensis', traditionally also known as the lifeline. The work was entered in a competition arranged in 1930-31 by the City of Helsinki to acquire public sculptures. Viktor Jansson's (1886-1958) work is cast in bronze and its height is 2.4 metres. Another version, 1.2 metres high, is located on Bertel Hinze's grave in the old section of the Hietaniemi graveyard. The work was modelled for by Viktor Jansson's daughter Tove Jansson, the author of the 'Moomin' books.
The work of art belongs to the collection of HAM Helsinki Art Museum.
