Vigeland Park, Oslo, Norway
Vigeland is one of Norway's best known artists and created the 200 awesome sculptures which adorn this beautiful park.
The peaceful layout of the park, which is located in downtown Oslo and is easily accesible by bus and tram. Vigeland worked on the park for over two decades until his death in 1943.
Vigeland's statues are known for their realistic shaping, their humanistic qualities and sexual connotations.
His sculptures showed the real side of humanity, and embraced forms of all sizes, all ages and all emotions.
Whether it be a a exuberant mother, joyfully raising her child to the sky...
Or a father trying to juggle his children...
All of his statues evoke movement, fluidity and strength.
Even on a heavy, rainy day, the beauty and splendor of Vigeland's artwork comes shining through.
