The Sky Master from Sandby

The exhibition

In the exhibition about the Heavenly Master, Museum Lolland-Falster presents, among other things, a fantastic mechanical sky machine and a unique biography written by the Heavenly Master himself. The exhibition tells about mental illness, poverty, emigration and inventiveness. It tells about the Master of Heaven.

The story of the Master of Heaven, as Hans August Larsen called himself, is a story about a man from small circumstances who emigrates in the late 1800th century and seeks happiness in the USA and Canada. It is a story about an inventor with an interest in the heavenly and connections to the spiritual and about a man who lived with mental illness. But it is also a story of a time when poverty and mental illness could mean lost rights and limited freedom.

The exhibition has been created in collaboration with Nakskov Local History Archive and can be seen during the REVENTLOW MUSEUM'S PEDERSTRUP's opening hours.
