When I was 18, I went to the Gustav Vigeland "Eros" exhibition in Helsinki. I was deeply moved by the Vigeland statues portraying the power and emotion of people. In the exhibition I saw a short documentary about the Vigeland park (Frogner park) in Oslo, Norway and I promised myself that one day I'd visit the park. This week I went to a business trip to Oslo with a nice co worker of mine, and indeed we found the time to visit the park!
It was amazing! I was really happy to fulfill this little promise to myself, and the statues were so beautiful and impressive. Statues are often quite dead, just shells of people sort of...the Vigeland statues are different. They seem to radiate with life. It must be the fact how much emotion they have. I can't really decide which statue was my favorit...there are so many to choose from. Below are some random photos from the park.
