Travel Photo of the Day 10-5-2011

Frogner Park – Oslo, Norway

Frogner Park is a short ride on the T-bane from downtown Oslo. The 75 acre park contains the lifetime works of Gustav Vigeland, Norway’s greatest sculptor. In 1921 Vigeland struck a deal with the City that provided him with a studio and state support, and for the next 20 years he created 192 bronze and granite statues with 600 unique figures. The park is always open and free. The top photo is the famous Sinnataggen (hot-headed little boy). To get this reaction, Vigeland gave the little boy chocolate and then took it away. In the bottom photo, this little Norwegian boy thought the sculpture was missing something.
