She Lies, Oslo

#85 of 455 in Things to do in Oslo
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.

  • This sculpture floating in water just opposite to the opera of Oslo. It is made of stainless steel and Glass-paneled and measured about 12 m high. It is an interpretation of the painting of Caspar David Friedrich, entitled "Das Eismeer" (the sea of ice). To who you are interested in sculpture and art is good to see the picture before see She lies. But seen from the roof of the opera as moves in the water and how it changes with the light also is worthwhile.

  • From the tilt of the theater to the pier, you will see this strange, glass sculpture, floating in the sea, is not a specific use, but a decoration in the center of the water.

  • One of typical sculptures of Oslo, located in the sea off the Oslo Opera House. Sculpture rotates on its axis in line with the tide and wind.
