Send an Anniversary Post Card

Retro much? Do as others have done for generations before you: Send a summer postcard from the Vigeland Park!

For the Vigeland Anniversary in 2019, the Norwegian Postal Services have designed brand new Anniversary Stamps with motifs taken from Vigeland's art. The Kiss and the iconic Angry Boy are the two chosen motifs by stampdesigner Kristin Slotterøy.

- Personally, I think the early sculptures of Vigeland are absolutely beautiful. They are alive and intense. He's drawings have a ruthlessness and power in them, says Slotterøy about the motif in the magazine for the Vigeland Anniversary

The background colors are strong and inspired by the colors of the Vigeland Park during summer. A transparent silver line from the sketches encircles the bronze sculptures on the stamps. Make sure you get the Anniversary Stamps for your postcard.

This is the seventh time Vigeland's art is the motive for stamps.
