Norway: Where the Men are Men and They Raise You Strong

Sometimes sculptors like to depict people on horseback, people standing, people posed in thought. But some sculptors like to take things a step further.

(The image in the link won't copy, but this is another picture of the statue. Apparently it's in the Vigeland Sculpture Park in Oslo, Norway. Artist Gustav Vigeland made this, along with a bunch of other sculptures, usually based on freaky people. This one here apparently represents the struggle between man/child. He likes to take things literally, that Vigeland.)
