Vigelandsparken


A country boy, raised on a farm just outside Mandal, on the south coast, Gustav Vigeland (1869 - 1943) began his career as a woodcarver but later, when studying in Paris, he fell under the influence of Rodin, and switched to stone and bronze. He started work on the Vigelandsparken in 1924, and was still working on it when he died almost twenty years later. It's literally fantastic concoction, medieval in spirit and complexity. Here he had the chance to let his imagination run riot and, when the place was unveiled, many city folks was simply overwhelmed - and no wonder.
