The Vigeland Monolith

Another photo from the Vigeland Sculpture Park in Oslo. The most popular part of the installation is the Monolith Plateau, which features the just over 14 metre tall Monolith (Monolitten in Norwegian, the word is derived from the Greek Monos, single, and Lithos, stone). It is made of granite and can be, according to the park's website, interpreted as "Man's longing and yearning for the spiritual and divine".

Vigelandparken 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.
