Vigeland Park – not quite as erotic as you might think.

posted on 20th November 2005 under Culture, Fall, History

Inspired of the wonderful, sunny weather me and my wife had a trip to the famous Vigeland Park in Oslo today. We love this opportunity to a quality time together, walking around in inspirational surroundings and share thoughts from the bottom of our hearts. We are there – intensively together and deeply involved in reaching the others meaning – the time stands still, and the conversation is rinsing our minds. The thoughts we shared are of course private, but I’ll gladly share the park with you!

I make Mr. Wonka – pasted from the web – who visited the Park in December 2003, mine: “The 212 naked bodies sculpted of bronze and granite in Vigelandsparken by Gustav Vigeland is not quite as erotic as you might think. In fact, the cycles of life these sculptures depict are anything but sexual. Okay, everyone takes away his or her own personal observations and thoughts about Vigeland’s mind-boggling collection of work. But that’s what makes a visit to the park a requisite for any visit to Oslo. No one opinion about what you’ll see here is right or wrong—it’s all about personal interpretation.”

As you can see from the pics Vigeland is describing peoples natural feelings in every details as they coddles together in varies life time situations. So alive, yet in stone, they are expressively inspiring the soul of mankind. It says you can have private, intimate and stimulating conversations on a golf curse. I would say Vigeland Parks invites in the same kind of atmosphere.

Speaking about inspirational talk: You can tell this wise man is telling his history to a well listening audience. The mature man is sharing his knowledge and experience in life in a trustful and open-minded way I would say. Looking at those people – and it is “only” a sculpture – you see and feel how they all in an expressional way enjoy the lecture.

The Park is very much alive and friendly, full of people even on a relatively cold day in November. A lot of tourists from all over the world it is easy to hear, as the native tongues expression are from all parts of the world. Colourful contributions as a pleasure for you’re ears as well as eyes are making the walk around a wonderful experience each and every day you are visiting.

You will find more information about Vigeland and the park here. And of course you are welcome to take a round tour any time when you are visiting the capital of Norway!
