She Lies, Oslo

#98 of 191 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 beautiful sculpture which reproduces an iceberg, I found it very much in keeping with the context. You can see from the roof of the Norvegian ballet and opera.

    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.

Where to stay in Oslo

A majority of Oslo's hotels and smaller accommodations cluster along Karl Johans Gate, the city's main drag connecting many of its downtown attractions. If you want something a bit more colorful than the average hotel, consider one of the many bed and breakfasts that have been cropping up in recent years. To escape the crowded streets, but still be walking distance from major sights, stay in the Frogner or Majorstuen neighborhoods near the royal palace. As you can probably guess, lodging is quite expensive in this European capital.
