A very curious park on the outskirts of Oslo highly recommended by most city guides.
The statues are not wasted. They represent states of human life with great force.
The park’s biggest attraction is the Monolith (“Monolitten”) which is a single block of granite that stands on a stepped octagonal platform is 17 meters high and is sculpted with 121 naked and interlocking human figures.
Another of the best-known sculptures in the enclosure is that of the angry child or with a “tantrum” (“Sinnataggen”). This work shares the park bridge with 57 other statues. It has become identified as a symbol of Oslo, appearing as such on postcards and tourist souvenirs.
The set of bronze sculptures and bas-reliefs is inspired by events in everyday life evoking moments such as birth, childhood, adolescence, first love, maturity, children, family, old age and death. All this synthesized by another of the famous sculptures of the park located at the end of it is called “Livshjulet” “the wheel of life” in which seven human figures, four adults and three children intertwine forming a circle. The beauty of the whole is indisputable.
