This statue is of Henrik Ibsen. You might have heard of him – he wrote the play “A Doll’s House” (and many others). He went to live in Germany for over 20 years because he was disatisfied with Norwegian society. When he returned to Norway he was treated like a hero.
When I took this photo I was trying to follow a theme created by Fi and Puse (who I stayed with in Brisbane – see one of the posts below) of statues of people with birds on their heads. As you can see I wasn’t successful! Actually there aren’t very many pigeons around Oslo – perhaps the gulls keep them away?

Maybe you need a stuffed pigeon you can carry round. A statue isnt really a statue without a pigeon on its head 🙂
