Are we allowed to climb on the Vigeland sculptures?
Imitation is irresistable, as these pics show, but what
about actual ascent? We spent the first few minutes
shooing Em & Ellie -- pictured here with new friends
from the cruise, Emma Jane, Samantha & Jessica -- off
the art, but we soon decided that it seemed pointless to
try to keep them off when the whole point of the garden
seemed to get people to engage with these dozens of
sculptures depicting the ages and stages of life and love.
Vigeland spent 19 years (1924-43) making them
in a park in Oslo.
