It was a gorgeous day at Oslo. We decided to take the tram and visit the legendary Vigeland Park ( See Wikipedia info below )
It is a huge place with hundreds of naked statues, sculpted by the great Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. At one point, I approached the plateau where a sculpted monolith stands. And when I turned towards the west I found out that I couldn't tell between the real people and the statues. I dedicate this picture to my friend Bulent Atalay.
(Wikipedia) Vigeland Sculpture Park is a part of Frogner Park, located in Oslo, Norway, 3 km northwest of the city centre. The park covers 80 acres (320,000 m2) and features 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland. Vigeland personally sculpted every figure out of clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the pieces into what they are today. These works of art reside along an 850 meter-long axis divided into six sections: The Main Gate, The Bridge, The Childrens Playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and the Wheel of Life.

I am flattered to be the recipient of the dedication, especially in this, the most original and effective rendition of Vigeland's famous sculpture. If it had not been depicted as a silhouette, I would not have realized how the sculptor emulated an obelisk. Thank you very much, Izzet.
If you get a chance, take a look at Smooth Domes.

İzzet Bey merhaba,
İnsanoğlunun yaşadığı bütün duyguların,olağanüstü güzellikle ifade edildiği heykellerle donatılan bu ilginç parkın konseptine çok yakışan farklı bir çalışma olmuş.Mavi-siyah kombinasyona bulutlar da sabun köpüğü görünümleri ile ne hoş desen yapmışlar.Yeniden görmüş gibi oldum bende.Teşekkürler paylaşımınız için.Saygılarımla.
