Friday, July 02, 2010Well on my last full day in Oslo I decided to make the trek to Vigeland Scupture Park. At first I wasn't really excited about it, but when I got there it was just jaw-dropping. The amount of work that went into carving the 212 bronze and granite statues, the initial carvings done entirely by Gustav Vigeland, is quite mind boggling. The best thing about the park is that it's completely free to enter (a huge relief considering how much everything costs there!), so with some pastries from United Bakeries in hand, I was well equipped to enjoy what was the highlight of Oslo.
The first sights of the statues of the park, welcomes nicely by a bridge.
The Fountain, which was 40 odd years in the making
The Monolith Plateau
And this is too cute...
Close up of the Monolith, which is supposed to represent man's desire to be closer to the spiritual, and the helping of one another to get there.
