Tensta, artwork on northbound track wall

(23 September 2002)
These panels, which I assume all have the Swedish word 'syskonskap' ('siblinghood') translated into various languages, are on the northbound track wall. I've become rather familiar with the northernmost panels because they're near where the head end of a northbound train stops.
