Vigeland Sculpture Park

This is my favorite.

The Vigeland Park is the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist, Gustav Vigeland, with more than 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. The park is considered his life’s work.

A friend of mine had recommended I see it while I was out walking. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, it was dark by the time I got there (4:00pm). And freezing cold. But this didn’t stop me from taking pictures of way too many favorites before I wandered on in search of something warm.

The sculptures are meant to represent different stages of life. They were all exquisite.

  1. Your favorite also resonated with me. There’s something so freeing about the pose that the sculpture woman is in. It must have been such a good experience to see these in person! Photos are hard to do sculptures justice, I think.
