Vigeland Park or Frogner Park (Frognerparken) is a public park located in the borough of Frogner in Oslo, Norway. The park contains the world famous Vigeland Sculpture Park (Vigelandsanlegget) designed by Gustav Vigeland, 1869-1943. The main statue of Vigeland Sculpture Park, a pillar in shape of human phallus, as a reminder of source of life is erected in the centre of the park, where named The Monolith Plateau. The Monolith Plateau is a platform made of steps that houses the Monolith totem itself. 36 figure groups reside on the elevation bringing with them the “circle of life” message. Access to the Plateau is made via eight figural gates forged in wrought iron. The gates were designed between 1933 and 1937 and erected shortly after Vigeland died in 1943.

Wow, I think you captured this perfectly! I really like how the exposure makes the figures completely black. I wonder if that is why this wasn't selected for GE, since your next two were selected and they are quite similar except those silhoettes aren't completely black. If that is why, then in this circumstance I say "not selected" is a complement! Warm greetings to you from California, USA!
