This statue is by Rolf Lunde (1891 – 1928).  Rolf originally was a painter but later moved to sculpture. He spent time in France, Germany and Britain.  The original of this statue (Tarn Peter) is in Lillehammer.  This copy is located outside the National Gallery in the centre of Oslo (not far from those statues outside the National Theatre.  The National Gallery shows art mainly by Norwegian artists, but some others also have their art on display.  The National Gallery is free which is a big bonus.

    How many statues are there in Oslo? How many statues are permitted within a square kilometre.? How about knitting hats to keep statue heads warm?

      How many? Lots and lots – you’ll have to come and visit and count them all. There’s an area of central oslo that I suspect has around 50 in one square kilometer! Some of the statues have snow hats at the moment. Julie (Knitting Noras) wants to make knitted items for the Fred Dibnah statue in Bolton. The statues need wooly accessories slightly more in Oslo.

    Apparently Donald Dewar in Glasgow gets given a scarf every now and again, along with the occasional traffic cone hat… Perhaps we should get your bro to send a photo…!
