Osloâ€™s Vigeland Sculpture Park showcases the human form as interpreted by sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943). Â 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. Â To avoid clothing styles â€œdatingâ€ the sculptures to a specific time period, all statutes were created nude.
One of Norwayâ€™s most-visited and unique attractions, the park is free and open year round 24 hours a day.Â
