Sept. 17, 1998  Vigeland Park

Vigeland Park is one if Norway's most popular attractions.  We were fortunate enough to have this living work of art just a few short blocks from where we were staying.   In total, there were 212 sculptures in bronze, granite, and wrought-iron, all by Gustav Vigeland, throughout the park.  Unfortunately, because of technical limitations, I can share only these few on this site.

When asked on a later train ride what inspired me most about Vigland's sculpture, I explained: "The strong message and/or emotion each work is so powerfully able to convey, yet with absolute simplicity in facial expressions and lack of detail in the rest of the body."  I have never seen anything like it.  Absolutely inspiring.
