Nice and simple!

Sentences in Swedish of course and not without some oddities. Our letters Å and Ä are uniformly represented as A. Same thing with Ö which (along with O) is turned into the digit 0...

Beginning from the top line, our Swedish readers will be able to discern at least the following words:

MAKARNAS (the spouses)
FAMILJEN (the family)
ENHETEN (the unit)
SKYDD FRÅN (protection from)
MÄN OCH KVINNOR (men and women)
ELLER (or)
BILDA FAMILJ (start a family)
GIFTERMÅL (marriage)

It's a beautiful and important piece of art.
