    It took three men 29 years to chip away at the granite for the monolith "Circle of Life", which goes from infancy to Old Age. There are 121 figures in the Circle of Life.

    This park with its human sculptures is a must-see.In fact there are some difficulties of taking pictures because of the many tourists groups.

    What really caught my eye about the statues is that they look very dynamic and convey as sense of freedom.

    The best of Oslo and one of Norway's most popular attractions. Here you can spend hours wandering around the 192 sculptures made by Gustav Vigeland. A real treat. This is at Frogner Park.
