Oslo’s Vigeland Sculpture Park showcases the human form as interpreted by sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943). Vigeland includes 212 bronze, granite and wrought iron sculptures depicting the cycle of human life from birth through old age.
Sculptor Vigeland created a full-size model of each figure, leaving the granite carving and bronze casting to his craftsmen. To avoid clothing styles “dating” the sculptures to a specific time period, all statutes were created nude.
One of Norway’s most-visited and unique attractions, the park is free and open year round 24 hours a day.
