After the Monolith Plateau and Circle of Life comes the final part of the Vigelandsparken. There is a sundial with images of the zodiac and a little further on a final sculpture, the Wheel of Life. Poor old Ben looked quite tired by this point, although it must be remembered he started the day some 700 miles away.
The Wheel of Life is designed like a wreath and formed of four people and a child, holding on to each other as they float around in a circle. They carry with them the overall theme of the park: the eternal journey of life, from the cradle to the grave.
At the time of taking this picture I hadn’t realised that its focal point was a rather shapely looking backside. Still, it’s too late now – the photo has been taken; it is what it is. I suppose the shot does at least remind you that as you journey through life, from cradle to grave, you ought to try to see some sights along the way.
But the sight I liked was looking back to the Monolith Plateau:
