Sinnataggen


Oslo, Norway 10-2010

Sinnataggen or “Angry Boy” is a statue in The Vigeland Park  in Oslo.The Vigeland Park was mainly completed between 1939 and 1949. The City of Oslo was its main contributor, but a number of private persons and companies also contributed. All the sculptures in the Vigeland Park were modelled in full size in clay by Gustav Vigeland.  He then let professional craftsmen do the carving in granite and casting in bronze. Vigeland was also in charge of the design and architectural layout of the waste area of 80 acres.
