Vigeland Sculpture Park - Oslo

Vigeland Sculpture Park is a part of Frogner Park, located in Oslo, Norway. The park features 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland. Vigeland personally sculpted every figure out of clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the pieces into what they are today. These works of art reside along an 850 meter-long axis divided into six sections: The Main Gate, The Bridge, The Children’s Playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and the Wheel of Life.

We noticed that some American tourists were offended by some of the nudes and their actions but I thought it was great, one of the best parks I have ever been to and it has some of the best and orginal art I have ever seen.
