Canvas with the painting Far, far away he saw something shining and glittering by Theodor Kittelsen from 1900 (Norweigan title: Langt, langt borte så han noe lyse og glitre). The work is part of the series Soria Moria Castle consisting of twelve paintings. The illustrated children's book with Kittelsen's own text was first published in 1911.

Theodor Kittelsen's portrayal of the boy Askeladden who sees the fantasy land soria moria in the distance, has become a symbol of hope for the future and the dream of success. 

Askeladden has walked a long way and finally he sees his goal - the brilliant castle Soria Moria: "Then he had lunch in the old cliff and went out into the wide world to find the castle. It carried over forest, valley and rocks. Far, far away, something like a little star. Then he finally came closer and closer, and even further away, east of the sun and west of the moon, lay the castle of Soria Moria in shining golden light. " 

Theodor Kittelsen is a Norwegian artist who, like Swedish John Bauer, is known for his fairy tale motifs with trolls and princesses. His work is still iconic in many Nordic homes, but despite being hailed as a national artist in Norway, he is hardly known outside Scandinavia.
