“Get the map, spend half a day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012

This art work is worth seeing. Best by bike, but also possible by foot. It takes about half a day to walk, or a couple of hours slow bicycling. It's also a brilliant way to get to see some of central Stavanger.
It consists of a number of sculptures placed around town in odd places. There is a story to go with it/them. Get the map at the tourist office, the story is on the map.

A very nice way to spend half a day if the weather is fine.

“Nice bold men”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

The artwork is made by Antony Gormley, a London-based sculptor also known for "Another Place". It took 4 years to decide whether or not to place the figures in Stavanger. It is now permanent, and the bold men can be seen in different places in Stavanger. One of the boldmen was placed inside the livingroom of an ordinary person : ) It`s art......what more can I say?
