Sculpture park in the Frogner Park with more than 200 sculptures by Gustav Vigeland (1869–1943) in bronze, granite and cast iron, including The Angry Boy (Sinnataggen in Norwegian), The Monolith (Monolitten) and The Wheel of Life (Livshjulet).

Vigeland was also responsible for the design and architectural outline of the park, which is one of Norway's top tourist attractions, with more than one million annual visitors.

The park is free to enter and open all year round, 24 hours a day.


info from wikipedia

The Vigeland installation (Norwegian: Vigelandsanlegget), originally called the Tørtberg installation, is located in the present centre of Frogner Park. It is the name of the arrangement of sculptures and not of an area as such, as the entire park is called Frogner Park. The Vigeland installation in Frogner Park is sometimes incorrectly referred to as the "Vigeland Park," but this name has no official status, is not commonly used in Oslo and is considered inaccurate. The legal name of the entire park in accordance with the Place Name Act (stadnamnlova) is Frognerparken (Frogner Park).The sculpture installation was, as part of Frogner Park, protected under the Heritage Act on 13 February 2009 under the name Frogner Park and the Vigeland installation
(Norwegian: Frognerparken og Vigelandsanlegget).

The sculpture area in Frogner Park covers 80 acres (320,000 m2) and features 212 bronze and granite sculptures, all designed by Gustav Vigeland. The Bridge was the first part to be opened to the public, in 1940. The Bridge forms a 100 metre (328 ft)-long, 15 metre (49 ft)-wide connection between the Main Gate and the Fountain, lined with 58 sculptures, including one of the park's more popular statues, Angry Boy (Sinnataggen). Visitors could enjoy the sculptures while most of the park was still under construction. At the end of the bridge lies the Children’s Playground, a collection of eight bronze statues showing children at play.

In the frogner park

Walking through the park, between the fountains and the statues

I saw the most beautiful man on earth, with bright eyes and captivating smile

I hurried to be near him, and I could smell his perfume, smell of a man I loved

His eyes looked at the statues of three girls who played
and I inevitably smiled

The weather was perfect, the wind brought the scent of flowers and the sun warmed me sweetly

He interrupted his observation and fixed his gaze on me, felt my heart beat and asked me for guidance

I told him I was a tourist guide of the frogner park and he smiled, although I instantly noticed that I was a tourist too

But he decided to continue the trip with me, until today we are company.

thank you for your wonderful poem @anasuleidy

Es un ambiente maravillosamente hermoso, (Parque de esculturas -Bigeland en Noruega), donde la creatividad se manifiesta magistralmente con la inherente finalidad de expresar la belleza, transformando una piedra, u otro ma-terial, con armoniosa destreza, la que por los méritos quedan como un legado para el disfrute de la ciudadanía y para nosotros los Esteemianos, quienes por este medio tenemos el honor de apreciar tan bellas imágenes en tan hermoso parque, mediante fotos y vídeos. Para mi fue un verdadero placer haberlos contemplado mediante las fotos que dejaste expuestas de manera bondadosa,así como también el vídeo. Gracias.bendiciones.

thank you for your great feedback @brismar

Wow, that is impressive park, I could even not able to imagine such project. Gustav was very talented and I can understand his love to created the human figure, human body with those materials. Human was is and will be one of the most favorite topic in Art.

The bridge is absolutely amazing, I can imagine that people love to walk there, actually I could be having a feeling been followed or stared among by the sculptures as they are so nicely integrated in the park.

Beautiful photography and you luckily had nice weather too :)

Nice that you like it, thanks @stef1

Surprisingly, mixing with all these statues must be something out of this world, feeling accompanied by these sculptures, I had never seen anything similar, demonstrating that the freedom of the human being and its transparency will show naturally.

Thank you @chris94

It is an extraordinary place, demonstration of creativity and freedom without sense of how beautiful the naked human body is and the love between human beings ... The great video, in which does your son appear?

Nice that you like it @jdbs

My son is there, but you mean the little boy who smiles at one of the pictures.
It's my son's stepson.
hehe, all my kids are good adults now

It's good that your children are adults, it means they are your company.
That boy is very handsome and looks so radiant.

Nice to hear, thanks @jdbs

Explendido place @xpilar I imagine that enjoyment must be guaranteed, so many old bronze images adore with a serious and classic touch, I imagine that during the night it must be beautiful with the mixtures of lights ..
