  The Angry Man

Pictured here is the angry man tossing children from Vigeland Park. I know its a bit on the violent side but it was one of my favorite statues in Vigeland Park. For some reason it commanded my attention everytime I walked past it more than any of the other statues.

The park itself covers an area of 80 acres. There are 212 sculptures by Gustav Vigeland in the park. Vigeland spent 40 years of his life creating the life size statues and desiging the park. However the majority of the sculptures were not installed until after his death. The park is always open 24 hours a day. The gates are never locked. The museum is open Tuesday - Sunday 12 pm until 4 pm in the winter. Tuesday - Sunday 11 am - 5 pm from June through August.

Check out the two travelouges for more information and pictures from the park.
