    The Royal guardsmen have watched over the Danish castles since 1658 - with bearskin, red gala uniform and a cross on their fronts. Since Kay Bojesen drew his guards in 1942, they have been present, on ordinary days and at parties, and also businesses wares when Danish show their colours internationally.

    The guards, made of beech wood, are hand painted and the sentry box formed packaging, which received the Formland Prize in 1992, wears the monogram with the approval of her majesty, Queen Margrethe of Denmark
