Vigelandparken

Enough photos from the Norsk Folkemuseum, here’s a picture from one of the other top tourist attractions of Oslo, Vigelandparken. I posted one other photo of this place some two and a half years ago.

Located in the centre of Frognerparken in the neighbourhood of Majorstuen in Oslo, Vigelandparken (Vigeland Sculpture Park) displays over 200 sculptures by sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943), making it the largest sculpture park in the world made by a single person. It was built between 1939 and 1949. The Monolith, here in the background, is 14.12m high, made of granite and can be, according to the park's website, interpreted as "Man's longing and yearning for the spiritual and divine".
