Have you noticed that there are sculptures all over Oslo? Don’t ask us why, because we don’t know. But they do make us laugh (like Nelson Mandela over here).

Here are the 8 most WTF sculptures in Oslo.

Well, it surely looks like it. Per Inge Bjørlo made six sculptures in the series named Alexis for Oslo Lufthavn airport, Gardemoen.

This bad boy is also part of the Alexis series by Per Inge Bjørlo located on the seaside of Oslo Central Station.

Or Eyes as the sculpture is called, made by Louise Bourgeois in 1997. It makes a nice view dosen’t it.

This hand feels a bit out of place. It’s so huge, but if you don’t notice it at first you may be surprised by it. We think this has something to do with the labor movement, but one can never be sure. Fist and Rose by Ola Ensta.

Everything in Vigelandsparken

Vigelandsparken is the world’s (!) biggest sculpture park made by only one artist, our man Gustav Vigeland. The park contains over 200 sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron. Our favorite is the mother on all four with two children on top riding her like a horse.

The man beating the shit out of some kids is also a must see.
