ha ha Ikey P, I understand your amusement with Vigeland perfectly!
He's quite renowned in Norway, tough many do not understand why he has been granted a large park all 'for him self' in the middle of our capital. And many - especially tourists - are kind of shocked by his art. Guess that was some of his intention as well (?)
Please allow me to put Vigeland into a 'philatelistic' content.
Vigeland did not only figure 'bad-asses' in his monuments, like these lovely ones:
Over here 'everybody' are familiar with this tiny little monument called 'Sinnataggen' (meaning approx "angry little fellow"):
Which has also been pictured on a Norwegian stamp:
Vigeland became famous for how he captured the human feelings in his monuments. Interestingly for stamp collectors - he also aroused the US post! The US denied to accept any letters carrying these stamps:
The stamps were issued to celebrate the international year for women - and over here our postal authorities thought 'liberated women' to be a good symbol for the womens year. US post did not approve the 'naked' women...
Vigelands stuff has been pictured on several other Norwegian stamps as well.
