The bridge's 58 bronze sculptures show a rich variety of children, women and men of different ages. Here you find the iconic little boy Sinnataggen (The Angry Boy). Shared themes for the sculptures on the bridge are play, lust, energy and vitalism.
Vigeland modeled these sculptures in the period 1925-1933. They were some of the first sculptures that were mounted in Vigeland Park in the early 1940s.
