If you're ever in Oslo you've got to go to Frogner Park to see Vigeland's sculptures. For most tourists it's all about the nudes. Well, who doesn't have even a little hint of voyeur inside them?
Their enormous bodies make you think of Nietzsche's Übermensch. The obelisk of tangled bodies makes an impression for sure, but what caught my eyes, were the children, the mean look in their eyes. Quite the opposite to how we look at kids these days. Maybe it has something to do with the Scandinavian way of life?
By the way it's interesting how many nude sculptures are around Oslo. They're definitely not puritans up there.
