We wish we could tell you exactly how many awards Børge Ring has won in his career. As some of you may know, the house of Børge and Joanika burnt down in February 2012 and all their worldly possessions were lost. This means that any artwork by Børge and Joanika left in this world, is very very rare and from that moment on became a collector’s item.
We know that at that time he had won 36 awards. It also means we don’t exactly have the details about all of the awards, as they – including the Oscar® statue that was placed on the dinner table – melted and burned. We did find the remnants in the ashes. Børge recently said: “A molten Oscar looks like an omelet run over by a truck…”.
