Frogner (Vigeland) Sculpture Park, Oslo, Norway
For me though the most beautiful statues where the ones that I could associate with. I have two sons. The statues of mothers and fathers proudly and loving holding there children as babies toddlers young and middle aged men was just to much and you find yourself choking back the emotion and turning your head momentarily whilst gaining your composure so as not to end up on someone’s photograph with tears streaming down your cheeks. Likewise the statues depicting the old men and women with there wrinkled face and sagging skin are just so moving you again gulp down the emotion bubbling up inside.
