Statue of the week: number 40

July 27, 2011

First of all I know the numbering is out of order.  But I wrote this one first, I just didn’t press the publish button.

This weeks statue is a sleek affair.  It sits between Akershus fortress and Rådhus plass. You can walk through it and I’m sure people climb and sit on it.  It’s called Marriage, sculpted by Tony Smith (1912 – 1980) in 1961 and was given to the people of Norway for their contribution to peace. There are 3 versions of Marriage.  The other two are in California and Iowa.
