While on our recent trip I insisted we go back to see Vigeland's bronze and granite life-size sculptures - 214 sculptures with more than 758 figures standing on 80 acres of public park - open 24 hours everyday of the year and free of charge.
Well our first day in Oslo it rained - seems to be a constant there. But thankfully the clouds cleared up for us on day two - In fact, it even got sunny, and we were able to enjoy this amazing sight. Vigeland modeled every sculpture in the park himself, without the assistance of pupils or other artists,
I also saw a few other Vigeland sculptures around Oslo and in its National Gallery. But the ones in Vigeland park - all nudes depicting the life cycle of birth to death - are the most impressive. Here are a few photos.
