She Lies, Oslo
(2.8/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This proberbly looked ok when it was first there. But it looks dated now. Needs to be updated and is dwarfed by the opera house. 
  • I like this sculpure, it goes well with the modern waterfront architecure of the house it is meant to salute. 
  • Interesting artwork, is only just too far into the water to the well see. Certainly in bad weather, this is a pity.
