One of my favorite stops on my recent trip was a visit to Vigeland Park in Oslo. This 80 acre sculpture park contains 212 statues by Gustav Viegland.
On the bridge of the park there are 58 bronze sculptures representing various stages of life. Here are a few of my favorites:
The park ends with one final sculpture: The Wheel of Life. From the park’s website, “The wheel is a symbol of eternity and is here executed as a garland of women, children and men holding on to each other. In a sense, this sculpture sums up the dramatic theme of the entire park: Man’s journey from cradle to grave, through happiness and grief, through fantasy, hope and wishes of eternity.”
