Vigeland Park (Sculpture Park)


Great site I found via Wikipedia about some wonderful sculptures in Oslo, Norway:

vigeland6

Translated from Dutch…kinda:

Many people say that Oslo but an ugly city. The port may be a strange mix of architectural styles and at first sight, not particularly, but if you look beyond your nose long, then there are indeed very beautiful currants in the pap to be found. Pak daarom de tram naar het westen van Oslo en probeer de toeristenbussen te omzeilen terwijl je het Vigeland Park inloopt. Pak therefore the tram to the west of Oslo and try to circumvent the tourist while the Vigeland Park inloopt.

Het Vigeland park is gewoon één van de mooiste parken van Europa. The Vigeland park is just one of the most beautiful parks of Europe. Een park dat zich door de beelden van Vigeland zonder meer met andere parken als Hyde Park (Londen), Regents Park (Londen), het Vondelpark (Amsterdam), het Maria Luisa park (Sevilla) en Parc Guelle (Barcelona) kan meten. A park that by the images of Vigeland well with other parks as Hyde Park (London), Regents Park (London), the Vondelpark (Amsterdam), the Maria Luisa park (Sevilla) and Parc Guell (Barcelona) can be measured. Het park bezit naast een fraaie layout welgeteld 192 sculpturen met daarin meer dan 600 figuren. The park owns next to a beautiful layout just 192 sculptures with more than 600 objects. Het thema leven en dood word in eindeloze cirkels neergezet in levensgrote beelden van baby’s, kinderen vrouwen, mannen, bejaarden en ook doden. The theme is life and death in endless circles in what life images of babies, children, women, men, elderly and even deaths.

Here’s the article, via Google Translator:

And the original article, in Dutch:

Also, here’s the Holy Taco article that made me look this up in the first place:

And, of course, a sculpture of a man throwing/kicking babies in the air:

    Leuke site!. Er zijn nog weinig goede sites over dit onderwerp te vinden.
    Ben blij met jullie post!
    Ik kan helaas geen bookmark aanmaken naar blog.wolffmyren.com in Firefox. :( Weten jullie hoe dit komt?

    Groetjes Barbara
