This park is named over him and Vigeland personally sculpted every figure present in the park out of clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the pieces into what they are today. The artworks are installed along an 850 mtrs long pavement which is furter divided into six sections:
  1. Main Gate

Vigeland Sculpture Park has been utilized in the Norwegian movie Elling & science fiction novel Mockymen by Ian Watson.
The statues, created by Vigeland, depict people engaged in various typically human pursuits, such as running, wrestling, dancing, hugging, holding hands and so on. However, Vigeland occasionally included some statues that are more abstract, such as the “Man attacked by Babies” statue, which shows an adult male, fighting off a horde of tiny babies.
