Vigeland Park or Sculpture Park is an area inside the Frognerparken in Oslo dedicated to the permanent exhibition of sculptures, bas-reliefs and wrought iron works by the Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. Vigeland Park covers an area of about 320 hectares and develops on a longitudinal axis of 850 meters. The park plan is divided into five successive areas. "The gate" The main entrance to the Vigeland Park is located on Kirkeveien, although it can be accessed from any of the Frognerparken entrances. The portal consists of five entrances decorated with bronze bas-reliefs, with two smaller doors in wrought iron on the sides. The recurring theme is that of dragons, one of the dominant motifs in Vigeland's artistic production, borrowed from the Viking tradition. Once entered, on the right you can see the statue of Vigeland, sculpted by the artist himself, who is represented at work with a hammer and chisel in his hand. "The bridge" Crossed the entrance to the square, we arrive at a large granite bridge: 100 meters long and 15 meters wide, it is oversized with respect to the small canal below. Vigeland wanted it so imposing, replacing the existing bridge in the Frogner Park since 1914. On the two sides of the bridge are mounted 58 bronze statues. They represent life-size men and women, adults and children, in groups or isolated figures. Among the statues of the bridge, the most famous is the Sinnataggen, the furious child: reproduced on postcards and tourist publications, it has become one of the symbols of the park and the city of Oslo. To the left of the bridge, further down near the water, there is a small circular area dedicated to games for children. At the center is the sculpture of an unborn child, and around 8 other small statues that portray children at various stages of their growth. After passing the bridge you will reach the large bronze fountain, the most impressive work in the park. At the center of the square basin, six men of various ages hold a large basin from which the water of the fountain gushes. The contribution that each of them gives to the common effort varies according to age and vigor. Along the edges of the pool are mounted 20 sculptures in the shape of a tree, which recall the real trees that grow in the park. Intertwined with the stem or foliage of the trees, human figures representing the various ages of life, from birth to death. The external walls of the pool are decorated with 60 bas-reliefs which also illustrate the course of human life, in relation to the overhanging trees. The pavement around the fountain reproduces a labyrinth. The black and white pattern covers an area of 1800 square meters, and the entire labyrinth development is almost 3 kilometers long. "The monolith terrace". From the fountain you climb, through a three-level staircase, to the highest part of the park. It is a terrace dominated by a 17-meter-high column, in which 121 human figures intertwined are represented. The column has been carved into a single piece of granite, and for this it is called the Monolith. The column rises at the top of an octagonal stepped structure. On the steps there are 36 sculptural groups. As for the bridge statues, the subjects are men and women, children and adults; but in this case they are collected compositions, little developed in height, where only the children stand, while the adults are seated or crouched. "The wheel of life". Coming down from the terrace you will reach the final part of the Vigeland Park path, which culminates with the sculpture called Livshjulet, the wheel of life. Seven human figures (four adults and three children) intertwine and chase each other forming a circle. The path ends with a work that sums up the basic theme of the entire park, the cycle of life, from birth to death.
