Woman at Ekebergparken

Sculpture at Ekebergparken

Ref: «self-portrait in tits» that I posted the other day.

“Human relationships didn’t work anyhow. Only the first two weeks had any zing, then the participants lost their interest. Masks dropped away and real people began to appear: cranks, imbeciles, the demented, the vengeful, sadists, killers. Modern society had created its own kind and they feasted on each other. It was a duel to the death–in a cesspool.”
― Charles Bukowski, Women

  1. Aha, so this is the full statue. Very nice. I like the quote by Bukowski. Agree that we often hold out guard up when we first meet people so as to try to make a good impression. But I think the real fun begins when the masks fall away… 😀

    • It’s a park area around a restaurant. The guy that owns the restaurant, chopped down some trees to put up these sculptures. Some local people were complaining about it and said that “they couldn’t use the forest to go berry picking with their kids, the guy created the park just so his restaurant could make more money etc, etc”.
      Fucking whiners, I say! They always find something to complain about. Now a lot of people use this area instead of just a few (like it used to be). So fucking what if the guy made the park to sell more potatoes and dill: he’s given the city a new tourist destination and besides you can enjoy the art without eating at his restaurant (which by the way is a retro piece of architecture that was just falling apart for decades until he restored it).

  2. People should think less with their stomach and more with their eyes! This is awesome and I applaud his contribution. Besides, you know I like watching beautiful women 😀

    • I applaud his contribution too. Christian Ringnes (the owner of the restaurant) is a great guy and the people of Oslo should be happy that he turned this area into something amazing.

      Here’s from the Wikipedia article about him:

      “Christian Ringnes (born 3 March 1954) is well known as a flamboyant businessman and art collector from Norway whose family started the country’s largest brewery Ringnes more than a hundred years ago. In his hometown of Oslo, Ringnes owns restaurants, hotels and museums, and recently donated more than $70 million for the creation of a large sculpture and cultural park, which opened in 2013. The Wall Street Journal ranks it as one of the top five parks in the world. Over decades Ringnes has built one of the largest private collections of art in the world.”
