This is the obelisk from Gustav Vigeland Sculpture Park, Oslo Norway.
An obelisk from Greek obeliskos, is a tall, narrow, four-sided, tapering monument which ends in a pyramidal top. Ancient obelisks were made of a single piece of stone (a monolith); however, most modern obelisks are made of individual stones, and can even have interior spaces.
In 1921 the City of Oslo decided to demolish the house where Vigeland lived and build a library. After a long dispute, Vigeland was granted a new building from the city, where he could work and live: in exchange, he promised to donate to the city all his subsequent works, including sculptures, drawings, engravings and models.

İlginç bir yapıt Pınar. Sen de çok iyi bir açıdan çekmişsin. Gökyüzüne yükselen derinlik gerçekten guzel; siyah beyaz kompozisyon da ayrı bir görünüm kazandırmış fotoğrafa.

The technical is a little too classic to me, but the subject is simply amazing. Never seen that before ! Really strange.
Thanks for that discovery.
