Blog – Where in the World? The answer
Did you get it? Yes, this week’s Where in the World? picture was taken in Oslo, Norway.
And for all those art experts out there the monument is the Monolith, found in the centre of the city.
Situated in the picturesque Vigelandsparken or Vigeland Park, it is part of the life’s work of sculptor Gustav Vigeland (1869-1943) and attracts more than one million visitors a year.
His work consists of more than 200 sculptures – figures vary between 198 and 212 – of naked men and women in various poses. The centrepiece is the Monolith, a phallic tower some 25 to 30 foot tall, consisting of 121 entwined (and, of course, naked) human figures reaching up into the sky.

Where in the World? will be back next Thursday.
