A very unique sculpture made of glass and metal located in the harbour next to the Opera House so check it out if you're doing the harbour walk.

I’m an art fan, but this is distasteful you placed in the middle of the water blocking your view for the bay. Right across the opera house. From a distance looks like piled metal or junk

In front of Oslo´ s Operahouse and the new Munchmuseum. It moves under the influence of the wind and the sea. Nobody knows the meaning of the title !

You can see this interesting piece of art from the Opera house. It floats in the middle of the harbour. It was made by Monica Bonvicini out of stainless steel and glass panels.

I like surprises and while walking around in Oslo, I found this art piece! I just love Oslo because of the architecture and art scene.

Didn't think too much of it in truth, just sort of looks like a temporary exhibit. Would look so much better if lit at night, or even featured a spotlight or two.

Went to the opera and from there you could see the ship. Was alright, nice little art project I guess.

Anchored just off the Opera House in Oslo is a floating metal and glass structure that resembles an iceberg, but is supposed to represent a ship that is sinking after hitting an iceberg.

Interesting piece of architecture. Unfortunately as it was cloudy I couldn't see any reflections. I imagine in a sunny day it can be more awe inspiring.
