She Lies, Oslo

(60+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
Admire the public sculpture of She Lies while visiting the harbor in Oslo. Created by Italian artist Monica Bonvinci in 2007, the figure sits on a floating platform in the fjord, several feet above the surface. As a recreation of the painting "Sea of Ice," the sculpture captures the look and feel of a jagged iceberg sitting in the fjord. When viewing the sculpture, you'll notice the water reflecting off the sculpture's glass panels. Get the best views of the landmark from the roof of the opera house. It's impressive any time of day, but sunset here yields the best photo ops. Plan your She Lies visit and explore what else you can see and do in Oslo using our Oslo vacation planner.

  • The sculpture "She Lies" is just in front of the operahouse in Oslo. Made of stainless steel and glass It's intended to resemble a rare diamond or ice, but the impact is nothing special or longlasting...  more »

  • A short walk from the Opera House sails on the water surface of art She Lies (the author is Monica Bonvicini). Sculpture of steel and glass, seated on a concrete platform, moving with the tides. Art has no limits, however, it struck me personally this floating pile of ice easily tacky.
