Early One Morning, Eternity Sculpture by Swedish artist Jacob Dahlgren (b. 1970, Stockholm) is a pink, serpentine steel sculpture at Capellanaukio Square in Kalasatama. The work rises to a height of four metres and is 10 metres in diameter. According to the artist, it is like the game where you draw a figure with a single line without lifting the pen from the paper.

Jacob Dahlgren wants to create urban spaces that provide an opportunity for relaxation and play. Inviting passers-by to sit on its lower levels, Early One Morning, Eternity Sculpture is a kind of meeting place, although climbing is forbidden.

"Its appearance changes depending on which direction you look at it from. It is like a phrase written in longhand and in a completely new language," Dahlgren describes his work.

The work belongs to the collections of the HAM Helsinki Art Museum.
