Views from Vigeland Park

Views from Vigeland Park in Oslo (,
which as my bike tour leader Paul noted, has the most naked statues anywhere in
the world.

Indeed, sculptor Gustav Vigeland, who studied under Rodin, planned the park, and nudes abound along the bridge and under it. Its most famous nude is a child in the midst of a temper tantrum, but I thought it was the least interesting. Still the story is Vigeland supposedly gave a kid an ice cream cone, then took it away and captured the kid’s displeasure in stone.
