The inscribed words 'jaja' translates to english as 'yes yes', 'oh-well' or 'whatever'. The phrase is used frequently in Norwegian and espechially in the south-western part of Norway. The chosen material is based on the abundance of rock in the area, due to new construction, reclaiming land and the tunnels being dug in the area.
