The iconic sculpture «Sinnataggen» in The Vigeland Park has been vandalized, and will therefore be removed for a period of time.

On the night of Tuesday 6 April, someone tried to saw over the left ankle of the sculpture. Sinnataggen (Angry Boy) has therefore been removed from the bridge for examinations and conservation. As soon as the work is done he will be placed back on the bridge where he belongs. This is vandalism against a protected cultural monument and the matter will be reported to the police.

– We want the public to have close access to the art of Vigeland so it is a shame that something like this happens. We hope to resolve the matter quickly and return the sculpture to the bridge as soon as possible, says Jarle Strømodden, director of The Vigeland Museum. 

Damages to the sculpture.
