Oslo is one gorgeous city. We visited The Vigeland Park today which is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, Gustav Vigeland. It is one of Norway’s most popular tourist attractions.
The sculpture park is Vigeland’s lifework with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the park. The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949.
Vigeland (1869–1943) donated all his works to the city of Oslo. In return, the city gave him the park and a studio that he could live and work in. The main theme in the park is the circle of life. This is also the reason all the sculptures are naked. Vigeland didn’t want any disguises. Everyone is the same. We all experience happiness, sadness, insecurities, laughter, stress, winning, and failing. He wanted statues that were stripped down and honest.
All photos taken by yours truly with my iPhone 7 Plus. The first photo of Eliot and myself was taken by a stranger. The balance me. One shot each. No retakes.
