Living in a place you often grow blind to the sights and sounds that are just around the corner from where you live. One of the most well-known sights in Oslo, Norway is the Vigelands park with statues by Gustav Vigeland dating from 1924. The park depicts the voyage of humans through life, from cradle to the grave. Happiness, anger, sadness, suffering, merriment, love, hate and all the rest is depicted by hundreds of stone and bronze statues, ranging from tiny to gigantic, with a monolith as a centerpiece, a 14 meter monolith with human bodies cramped together, reaching for the skies.
