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.
Great place ... amazing statues.
Must see ... even if you are not into art, I'm sure you will enjoy this ...
This large park is an open air museum commerating Norway's most famous sculpture Gustav Vigeland. The park features 212 of Vigeland's works including his most famous.
The star attraction of the park is the famous Monolith, an impressive 14m tall column with human figures carved out of a single piece of stone.
What really caught my eye about the statues is that they look very dynamic and convey as sense of freedom.
